Profound Desire of the Gods

Shohei Imamura, 1968, Japan, 35mm, 172 min

Imamura's first color masterpiece, this epic portrait of the near-primitive and incestuous lives of the inhabitants of one of Japan's Southern Islands is Imamura's most powerful and disturbing work, and easily one of the ten greatest (and most unforgettable) films of all time.
