3 Faces Of Shinji Aoyama, The

Cannes Film Festival award winner, and best film and director award winner of the Japanese Association of Film Professionals, Aoyama remains one of the most powerful talents to emerge in the East over the past ten years.

An Obsession

In Aoyama's world, obsession is the common condition of man, and for his purposes here, it takes the form of a workaholic detective, Saga, and a homicidal leukemia patient Shimano. Each is driven down the road to destruction, a path on which Aoyama explores the dark night of the human soul. Along the way, Saga is f-rced to endure the rewards of his own obsessive dehumanized behavior.

Em Embalming

A needle found embedded in the body of an apparent suicide leads embalmer Miyako (Reiko Takashima) to believe that there may be more to this death than meets the eye. And when the corpse's head is severed and stolen, Miyako's journey begins through a nightmare world of multiple personalities, live organ harvesting, illegal drug experiments, religious sects and murder...

Wild Life

Re-inventing the genre, Wild Life tells the story of an ex-boxer who somehow gets caught up between the yakuza, the police, the hunt for a mysterious package, and his kidnapped boos' daughter and who doesn't have a clue about what's going on!
