JUJIRO (CROSSWAYS, Teinosuke Kinugasa, 1928)
Japanese master Teinosuke Kinugasa ("A Page of Madness") spins our senses in this heightened avant-garde blast of rampant symbolism, distorted architecture, flashbacks, flash-forwards, and deliriously subjective cinematography. Set in Tokyo's red-light district of Yoshiwara, JUJIRO is jidaigeki (period film) that blows apart the genre to tell the tragic story of a brother and sister caught up in a fever dream of menace, hysteria and sacrifice.
