Plot: Literally translated as "banquet for demonic beasts," KICHIKU was shot on a shoestring budget as a student thesis film, but it introduced a raw, visceral style that was virtually unseen before. Set in 1970s Japan and often interpreted as a critical depiction of the student political scene of that time, it depicts a radical leftist group whose charismatic leader, Aizawa, has been put in prison. His girlfriend Masami takes over, but is considerably less effective in maintaining the group's cohesion, and when Aizawa commits hara-kiri in jail, the group falls apart in a frenzy of paranoia and internal purging that incorporates an orgiastic excess of brutal torture and bloodshed. This has been called the most violent movie ever made, but its political and critical intentions has made it an arthouse favorite.
