Ôkoku (The Kingdom) /1973/ Japanese

FiC Rating: 3.5/5
Dir:   Kanai Katsu
Why FiC recommends?
1) This is a Bizarre film that plays with theme of time which serves as the main beams for the exploration of Goku, the poet protagonist of Kanai’s THE KINGDOM who wages war against Chronos, the god of time – against a notion of time as linear, measured, and irreversible.
2) Visually creative (and very beautiful) when it serves the progress of the suggestions contained in the film, it is a film of multiple moments without any of them being detached from the single form or purpose. A must for Experimental and surreal cinephiles.
