Crazed Fruit aka Juvenile Jungle

Great Japanese film directed by Ko Nakahira, watched for the first time last night and then again today with the commentary by Donald Richie. I'm really enjoying all the Japanese films I've watched lately and was disappointed that Netflix didn't have anything else by this great director and that in fact his other films were not done in a like manner because of restrictions placed on him by the producers. One of my favorite scenes is where there is a radio left on a dock playing music for no one but the watchers of the film to hear. The story seems geared towards young men more so than an almost 40 year old female but I thought the way it was filmed was absolutely beautiful.
