Based on the story of a real-life criminal, Vengeance is Mine details the day long killing-spree undertaken by Iwao Enokizu, who doesn't seek revenge from one particular person as you'd expect out of a genre picture. In fact, the film is driven by the ways he's hurt throughout his life, and the counterintuitive ways he seeks revenge. Vengeance is Mine explores the roots of Iwao's murderous tendencies. It leaves exact causes vague, but explores a drive that leads him down the path to repeated murder.
Imamura's affection for Japan's criminals, outcasts, minority groups comes through with style and energy coupled with darkest humor and context, and is an obvious inspiration for contemporary filmmakers, including former apprentice Takashi Miike.

Vengeance Is Mine () | The Criterion Collection
The things that are to come on them shall make haste. While avoiding the mob and local authorities, a world-weary pornographer finds being a family man the most difficult as he wrestles with his own desires and afflictions. Iwao Enokizu is a middle-aged man who has an unexplainable urge to commit insane and violent murders. Eventually he is chased by the police all over Japan, but somehow he always manages to escape.
He meets a woman who runs a brothel. They love each other but how long can they be together? Written by Mattias Thuresson. I know there is a growing cult surrounding Imamura 'The Pornographers' , but I'm still extremely surprised that this movie isn't better known and discussed more. The narrative structure can be a bit confusing at first, and that combined with Imamura's non-judgmental approach might throw some viewers for a while, but if you persevere you won't regret it. Ken Ogata gives an impressive performance and the movie as a whole is utterly brilliant.
I watched it twice to try and fully appreciate it, and I would now rate it as one of the very best movies of the s my favourite movie decade. This beautiful and disturbing movie comes with my highest recommendation!
