“Adachi’s mystery sci-fi film remains, after all these years, a highly entertaining narrative.”
“A wonderful and refreshing blend between the jidai-geki/chanbara and the kaiju genre.”
“Masamura delivers a phenomenal narrative, a true post-war classic.”
A classic that, as a critique of capitalism and materialism, has not lost any of its relevance.
Imamura’s ‘Black Rain’ is, without a doubt, one of the most important films about the atomic bomb ever made and should be mandatory viewing for anyone who holds the promise of world peace dear.
A successful reboot that succeeds in honouring Gamera’s classic past, while also evolving this iconic Kaiju in a meaningful way.
