A story about how memory is an act of creation, how creating is an act of redemption, how truth doesn't inhabit nude matter but inhabits the self-consciousness of one's deep desires.
Related quote: "In the 'Fleurs du mal', Baudelaire foresees the first step towards the revaluation of the temporal distance with past experiences. [...] But he doesn't care as much for that distance as he cares for the active work of revivification, of memory, of the effort that takes stirring the bunch of debris buried by time".
Also, pay attention to what clocks mean in this movie. Enjoy it.
This should be mandatory viewing. Terayama is a genius.
Wonder if Terayama had seen The Hourglass Sanatorium before making this.
