The Shohei Imamura Masterpiece Collection

This Masterpiece Collection of the works of Shohei Imamura lives up its name, collecting eight of the director’s works covering a period starting with his 1958 debut Stolen Desire up to 1983’s The Ballad Of Narayama. Along the route there’s comedy in Nishi-Ginza Station and crime in Pigs And Battleships and Vengeance Is Mine. There’s powerful social commentary in The Insect Woman, while the ground-breaking documentary A Man Vanishes follows Imamura and his crew trying to trace a missing businessman.
