A favorite of both Leslie Thornton and Elizabeth LeCompte of the Wooster Group, Thornton chose Kaneto Shindo’s masterpiece to screen with their collaboration Rhyme ‘Em To Death. Set in the grassy marshlands of sixteenth-century Japan, a mother and daughter-in-law scrape out a feral subsistence by robbing and murdering lost samurai. But things take a macabre turn when they come into possession of a demonic mask. Kaneto Shindo transforms an ancient folktale into a bone-chilling erotic ghost story, lent a glacial beauty by the shimmering monochrome cinematography.
