Episode 453: Blind Beast (1969)

Guest Co-Hosts: Coffin Jon, Elric Kane

Our appreciation of 1969 continues with our second look at an adaptation of ’s work, Blind Beast. Directed by Yasuzô Masumura, the film stars Mako Midori as Aki Shima, a model, and Eiji Funakoshi as Michio, a blind sculptor who becomes obsessed with her. He and his mother kidnap Aki and keep her in his warehouse studio where the two become engaged in a game of cat and mouse as he tries to create a new form of art that only the blind can appreciate.

Coffin Jon and Elric Kane join Mike to discuss the film specifically and Masumura's work generally.
