Two seemingly different characters share a deadly attraction in Oshima’s gloriously colorful Cinemascope crime thriller. The central character, Otoko, suffers a paranoid delusion that someone is out to kill him, but loses focus when he falls into a torrid relationship. The distractions of love-making, television, toys, and pop culture suck the life from the couple. 1967, new 35mm print, 98 minutes.
