Bara no Sōretsu (Funeral Parade of Roses) (1969)
« on: February 09, 2013, 08:06:10 AM »
Funeral Parade of Roses (Bara no Sōretsu) is a 1969 Japanese film directed by Toshio Matsumoto. It is a loose adaptation of Oedipus Rex set in the underground gay counterculture of 1960s Tokyo. The film was released by ATG (Art Theatre Guild) on September 13, 1969 in Japan; however, it did not receive a US release until October 29, 1970. The film was later a major influence on Stanley Kubrick's 1971 film A Clockwork Orange.

In my experience, this film is pretty 'under-seen', even within cult film circles, so I'd like to share it with you, the good people of EHC. Hopefully some of you would have seen this, if not I'd certainly urge you to check it out.

Thanks for sharing.  I'm going to check this out for sure.  Japan is my favorite country for film so any more recommendations are always welcome.
