This doesn't have much to do with Terayama or Tenjo Sajiki, but it's still a timeless and little known masterpiece from the Japanese New Wave / ATG that everyone has to watch!!! Akio Jissōji was a spectacular director, who could combine traditional Buddhist art and ethics with electrifying eroticism and intense modern sensibilities in his auteur films (while being successfully engaged at the same time in a number of TV / commercial cinema projects)...

Carol Fisher Sorgenfrei’s Unspeakable Acts: The Avant-Garde Theatre of Terayama Shuji and Postwar Japan is probably the most comprehensive English-language study... Very few Terayama's writings have been translated into European languages :-(

What youre saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I also love the images you put in here. They fit so well with what youre trying to say. Im sure youll reach so many people with what youve got to say. chinese new year 2012 mid autumn festival 2011 hungry ghost festival 2011
