JUN KUROSAWA SELECTED WORKS VOL.1: JESUS WITH ONE LEG (KRAUT FILM)
by Jesse Cumming
While the phrase “lost decade” is typically used in reference to the period of economic stagnation that marked Japan in the 1990s, the term also serves to describe that era’s production of experimental films. Little seen since their original creation and exhibition, the work hasn’t benefited from the same sustained (or renewed) attention as contemporaneous horror, anime, and arthouse dramas, whether domestically or internationally.
