Mishima’s Only Film

with one comment

The Criterion Collection released Yukio Mishima’s 1965 film, Patriotism, based on the story, which is being reissued in the ND Pearl series next month.  It is the only film that Mishima made.  We found a it on YouTube as well.  The film is very faithful to the story, with no dialog and only written narration.  Even the sex scene is still pretty hot.  Mishima said that “Patriotism” was his favorite story.  The film is especially haunting when considering that Mishima took his own life in a similar fashion only five years later.  Click here for parts two and three.
