Based on Junichiro Tanizaki’s famous short story, an obsessive tattoo artist kidnaps a female student with perfect skin in order to give her an elaborate tattoo.

"What I appreciate the most with Shisei is [director] Sato's use of layered imaging and reflection. It was far more artistic and experimental than I was expecting." -Andrew Mack, Twitch

Based on the novel by Michiko Matsuda, a young girl, kidnapped and held in captivity for forty days, undergoes a startling transformation.

‎"Tonally, with its mish-mash of exploitative thrills and arthouse sensibilities, Perfect Education: 40 Days of Love is not unlike another film distributed by Art Port in its native Japan, Takashi Miike’s Audition (1999)." -Coffin Jon, V Cinema Show

Three String Samurai

A down-and-out rock guitarist is abducted and trained to become a master shamisen player.

‎"Two things differentiate the film from the horde of familiar titles: the shamisen playing, which is legitimately amazing (and all performed by the actors onscreen), and the film’s freewheeling sense of stylistic and tonal whimsy." -Chris McGee, The Toronto J-Film Pow-Wow
