Description Sogo Ishii is one of those seldom recognized filmmakers. He reinvented filmmaking in Japan through the lens of the punk rock scene. This is the one film that cemented his influence in Japan: starring several then-popular local punk rock bands, and with the unrelenting style of a complete outsider of traditional cinema, he just put expectations of what a movie should look like and be about on their head. It is not an easy film to watch (hope you don't get motion sickness), but it's celluloid history.

From Midnight Eye:


Those looking for examples of the importance of Sogo Ishii in the development of Japanese cinema, and his abilities as a filmmaker, need to look no further than Burst City. At first sight a rather eclectic mix of Mad Max-style imagery with yakuza elements, filtered though a punk sensibility, on closer inspection Burst City reveals the seeds of many of the developments in contemporary Japanese cinema and beyond. It foreshadows everything from the works of Shinya Tsukamoto and Takashi Miike to two decades' worth of MTV music videos. And quite a few things in between.
