  • Ecstasy of the Angels

    1972. Japan. Directed by Koji Wakamatsu. Screenplay by De Deguchi (Masao Adachi). With Ken Yoshizawa, Rie Yokoyama, Yuki Aresa. Extreme leftist politics and candid sex collide in Art Theater Guild’s most controversial feature, as the bad boys of “Pink Cinema,” Koji Wakamatsu and Masao Adachi, depict Tokyo as a bombed-out city on the verge of revolution, anticipating real-life bombings of police stations and internecine warfare among various splinter activist groups. Courtesy Blaq Out. In Japanese; English subtitles. 88 min.
