This kaleidoscopic panorama of Tokyo’s drag queen underground at the tail end of the ’60s remains one of the great underseen works of LGBT cinema. With its explicit nudity and drug use, stunning visual allusions to graphic design and comic books, and wild fluctuations between narrative and documentary, the late Matsumoto’s debut is truly revolutionary. Stanley Kubrick famously cited it as a major influence on A Clockwork Orange, but there’s never been another film like it, before or since. A Cinelicious Pics release.
