The Sun's Burial

type
  • Movie

The Sun’s Burial, a dark fable from Japan, trains a harsh, unforgiving lens on gang life in the slums of Osaka, a city still reeling economically and morally from the war 15 years earlier. With relentless violence and only the barest glimpse of humanity, this fatalistic tale is marred only by an unaccountably hopeful ending. B+
