Prisoner | Terrorist

Trailer (QuickTime Video) for Prisoner | Terrorist by Masao Adachi. (jp) Also... an Interview with Masao Adachi at Midnight Eye. "...Born in 1939 in Kita Kyushu, Adachi emerged from the Nihon University Film Study Club, better known as Nichidai Eiken, alongside filmmakers like Motoharu Jonouchi and Isao Okishima, to become one of the leading figures in the underground experimental scene of the 60s, with films like Sain (1963) and Galaxy (1967). However, it is for his later associations with Nagisa Oshima, in whose Death by Hanging (1968) he appears in the role of the security officer, and more famously with Koji Wakamatsu, scripting literally dozens of his most famous titles including Embryo Hunts in Secret, Go Go Second Time Virgin, Sex Jack and Ecstasy of Angels, that he is best known."
