Koreyoshi Kurahara is a lesser known director, being caught between his contemporaries, Ozu, Kurosawa and Kobiyashi, among others. He is an obscure director, and I want to personally thank Criterion for giving him the time of day and releasing several of his films. This collection is very satisfying for fans of Kurahara and Japanese cinema in general. The films here are certainly warped as the title suggests, but they are also oddball, colorful, funny and at times even heartwarming. Kurahara was a versatile director, and one of many who went from black and white into color film effortlessly, as evidenced by the jump from films like "The warped ones", and "Black Sun" to the vibrant "I hate but love" in glorious full color. While the films are not particularly intellectually stimulating, they are a breath of fresh air, and offer a zany look into the filmography of an underrated director doing what he did best. If you are considering buying this collection, do it. It is easily one of the best releases from the CC, and you will not regret it!
