One of the finest existential films I've ever seen, and also one of the most challenging. Although it's religious focus is Buddhism, it's themes are universally significant. Like the other two films in the so-called Buddhist trilogy, it explores conflicting philosophies, and these philosophies combined with the narrative itself leave the viewer with a great deal to think about concerning life, death, religion, and sexuality. Visually it's simply exquisite. Jissoji's aesthetic is on full display in beautiful black & white.
