The most famous Japanese writer of the postwar generation—whose rigorous pursuit of conservative values and physical prowess made him a controversial public figure—is paid stunning tribute in Schrader’s elaborately stylized biopic, blending colorful dramatizations of his novels with black-and-white flashbacks and a hypnotic Philip Glass score.

In English and Japanese with English subtitles.
