The life of postwar Japanese novelist Yukio Mishima is stunningly dramatized here by Paul Schrader (American Gigolo). With a driving score by Philip Glass, this unconventional biopic is framed by Mishima's tragic final act while flashing back to his youthful self-transformation and interspersing boldly stylized re-creations of his works. Mishima's sole filmmaking venture, the prescient dramatic short Patriotism, offers an intriguing complement for larger collections.
