AFS Presents: EIGHT HOURS OF FEAR
October 9, 2015 @ 9:30 pm
Friday October 9, 2015, 9:30PM
Directed by Seijun Suzuki
Japan, 1957, 35mm, 77 min., B&W
In Japanese with English Subtitles
Given a fairly routine melodrama script about a bus loaded with passengers fleeing a typhoon and hijacked by gangsters, Seijun Suzuki played it for laughs, which did not endear him to his bosses at the Nikkatsu studio, who partially re-edited the film. What’s left is bizarre and appropriate to the career of the maverick Suzuki.
