The Fish Stays In the Picture


A couple more from Nagisa Oshima's "Empire of Passion", 1978.




Oshima wryly sticks dead animals in the foreground.  Something is rotten in this house.

Empire Of Passion


Nagisa Oshima, 1978














A married woman has an affair with a younger man, the man grows jealous and convinces her to murder her husband, the husband haunts them and things end poorly.  The tired story is not treated particularly originally here but the sets always look great and the colors are vivid and interesting.  Next time I'll watch Taboo instead.
