Biography of Yukio Mishima, author and would-be revolutionary. Intercutting between flashbacks from his life with stylised creations of some of his works (which reflect his life). Sumptuous visual and audio feast abetted by a magnificent score by Philip Glass, maybe Shrader's best work. Subject matter is the only problem and will offput some.
