Movie Info

Years after fleeing the city to escape the wrath of an elite team of metropolitan police infected by corruption, a senior detective returns to the city to uncover the secrets of the past in director Mamoru Oshii's nightmarish totalitarian thriller. Though the Kerberos were originally created to fight back against a world fallen to chaos, it didn't take long for the fearsome police force to succumb to the effects of greed and transform into a force of evil. When three members of the Kerberos decided to buck the system, the only one of the trio to escape with his life was police detective Koichi Todome. Years have passed since that failed uprising, and now as Todome returns to the city, he will find that his struggle to survive has only just begun.

Audience Reviews for The Red Spectacles


A twisted, bizarre, and hilarious journey into a surreal dreamlike world, you would be surprised that this is, ultimately, a retelling of Alice in Wonderland, but with guns. Recommend.

Surreal and provocative. Like if Dali were to make a Kurosawa film. I can't believe no one has watched this outstanding artistic film.
