In the Realm of the Senses is possibly Oshima's greatest film, and doubtless his most scandalous. It's paired here with Pleasures of the Flesh, one of Oshima's films Martin Scorsese calls "essential."
A ferocious tale of erotic obsession, In the Realm of the Senses is a hard-core classic of world cinema that caused riots at Cannes and was severely censored in Japan. (110 mins., 35mm)
Pleasures of the Flesh is a bizarrely funny satire on Japanese's "economic miracle." Its story focuses on an alienated white collar worker and a young woman he's obsessed with. (90 mins., 35mm)
