SR: Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence EN

Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (1983) by Nagisa Oshima
is a film from Japanese prison camp. But itself does not evoke feelings of restriction and lack of freedom (like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975). Violence, and limitating inabilities come from inside.
Precisely controlled viewpoint, hypnotic music by Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Bowie as a devil from Japanese myths.
Watch it, and try to be humans yourselves.
