The Horizon Glitters
Shintoho Schlock: Girls, Guns & Ghosts

Aug 07 - Aug 08

(Michiyoshi Doi, Japan, 1961, Blu-ray, 89 min)

Part of our Double Feature: Busting Out of Bars!

Wednesday, Aug 07 at 09:00PM

This black comedy about a prison break gone wrong was unlike anything else Shintoho made. Released just before the studio's collapse, The Horizon Glitters is a brilliant one-off that doesn't fit in the usual genre boxes, made with a freedom and an energy that verges on the anarchic. A motor-mouthed proto-punk breaks out of prison with his cellmates, in search of a large cache of diamonds. Director Michiyoshi Doi spices the journey with incidents and antics that are a mix of slapstick and surreal.
