Noisy Requiem

Trailer (QuickTime Video) for Tsuito no Zawameki (Noisy Requiem, 1988, directed by Yoshihiko Matsui). (jp) Also... a Review of Noisy Requiem at Midnight Eye. "...With Noisy Requiem, Matsui finally found his own unique voice: slow-paced, intense, cruel and telling a tale of epic proportions. It took him 5 years to realize the movie but when it finally premiered in 1988, it became an instant success on the Japanese underground scene. Punk rockers and other outsiders especially could easily identify with the characters prompted into vicious acts after repeated rejection, and their numbers were big enough to turn the film into a (modest) financial success. The movie still shows up occasionally on the Japanese underground cinema circuit and it still has plenty of hard-core fans."
