THE MAD FOX

Tomu Uchida, Japan, 1962, Arrow Films, Arthouse

“Shapeshifting fox women deserve love and happiness too.” -- Aaron Dean, Letterboxd

Visionary Tomu Uchida’s wildly stylized widescreen tableaux here draw inspiration from bunraku and kabuki theater, in stark contrast to the monochrome naturalism of Uchida’s earlier masterwork BLOODY SPEAR AT MT. FUJI.

Amidst a mythically-depicted Japan, a court astrologer’s wife conspires to murder, the astrologer’s apprentice goes mad in the woods and the presence of ancient fox spirits may be the key to peace across a fractured nation.
