Dr. Akagi Reviews

February 14, 2001
Accomplished at expressing the complexities of human nature and emotions, Imamura has captured a sense of timelessness to the extent that we all but forget the time and place.
January 1, 2000
As lively, irreverent, and bizarrely cheerful as any of Imamura's previous low-life sagas.
January 1, 2000
Confirms for anyone who saw The Eel that here is one of world cinema's great humanists.
January 1, 2000
It does make [Imamura], in his mid-70's, arguably the youngest-hearted filmmaker in Japan.
January 1, 2000
Imamura allows himself poetic touches, sparingly.

[Imamura] leaves us with a sense of immersion in a Zeitgeist far from our own experience -- fascinating.
