Synopsis:
Oshima's spin on the notorious 'pink' film is a brazen and vivid thriller that takes a Hitchcockian premise (a murderer is blackmailed by a thief) and turns it into an allegory of post-war materialism, greed and sexual exploitation. Having murdered a man who raped one of his students, teacher Wakizaka finds himself blackmailed into hiding a huge sum of stolen Yakuza money. Increasingly paranoid, unstable and deteriorating further into a spiral of guilt and obsession, Wakizaka succumbs to his baser instincts and spends the cash on indulging his every impulse and sensual urge – and face the consequences later…
