mishima wrote, directed, and starred in this short film that may be one of the most difficult films to watch or embrace in cinematic history. not only is the film graphic on its own account, but watching the film with the knowledge that mishima carried out his characters fate in real life 4 years after he made this film turns the film into an eerie self fulfilling prophecy. the film is absolutely beautiful when seen in the context of japanese culture and mishima created some powerful images not easily forgotten, but its harder to love the film like i wanted to when considering mishima exploited this film to carry out his own attepmt at artistic immortality in the likeness of manufactured tragedy. regardless of circumstances outside of the film itself, this is a cinematic experience that should not be missed.
