Martin Kessler is joined by Chris Funderberg and John Cribbs of to discuss the films of two-time Palme d’Or award-wining director Shohei Imamura. They talk about his dark subject matter, his bleak point of view, the phases of his career, and his wild sense of humour. They discuss how Imamura has been handled by critics, compare him to New German Cinema, Luis Buñuel, and discuss why comparing him to other Japanese filmmakers may be a misleading.
