Directed by Nagisa Oshima | 1969

Oshima took a ripped-from-the-headlines, tabloid-shocker premise—low-life parents use their young, alien-obsessed son to fake car accidents and then extort money from the drivers—and elevated it to a haunting investigation of the failures of Japanese society. The stunning visuals—periodically slashed by Brechtian distancing effects—enhance the film’s shattering emotional impact.
