Pigs and Battleships (Blu-Ray and DVD Edition)
£9.99  

With this, his fifth film, Shhei Imamura finally answered his true calling as Japanese cinemas most dedicated and brilliant chronicler of societys underbelly with the astonishing Pigs and Battleships [Buta to gunkan]. A riotous portrait of sub-Yakuza gangsters battling for control of the local pork business in a U.S. Navy-occupied coastal town (Yokosuka), Imamura conjures a chaotic world of petty thugs, young love, tough-headed women, and underworld hypochondria, with one of the most unforgettable climaxes ever to grace the screen. Featuring dynamic black-and-white Scope cinematography, the directors typically sly sense of social commentary, and a host of outstanding performances (including Jitsuko Yoshimura from Onibaba), Pigs and Battleships immediately became a cornerstone of the Japanese New Wave and remains perhaps Imamuras most sheerly entertaining work. Special Dual Format Release Including Blu-Ray & DVD Versions Of The Film: Exclusively restored high-definition master from the original camera negative (1080p on Blu-ray) Stolen Desire [Nusumareta yokuj] (1958), Imamuras debut feature for Nikkatsu in a new high-definition transfer [93 minutes] (1080p on Blu-ray) Newly translated English subtitles for both films A booklet featuring essays on both films by Tony Rayns and rare stills
