I've rarely heard this film brought up among the classics of its era, but it's as great as any movie I've seen from an Asian director.

Spectacular cinematography -- a few exterior shots looked fairly dangerous -- and an art house theme that works as pure entertainment. I wonder if Jonathan Glazer is a fan, because there are several scenes that could've been inspirational to Under the Skin (the amazing soundtrack, sense of entrapment, extreme close-ups and cold shots of natural scenery).

An unheralded masterpiece.
