Inu-Oh | Masaaki Yuasa | 2022 | Japan | 98 minutes
Rooftop Cinema kicks off the 2023 season with this acclaimed anime feature from director Masaaki Yuassa (Mindgame, The Tatami Galaxy). Fourteenth-century historical fiction plays out with a heavy glam-rock sensibility in this story of two outcasts who use their talents to achieve stardom and challenge the social and political status-quo. Nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Golden Globes.
“A rich, unstable alloy of history, legend, musical pageantry and cinematic psychedelia, it mounts an argument for mind-expanding, complacency-rattling art in a world that often prefers the opposite.” –Justin Chang, The Los Angeles Times
In Japanese with English subtitles.
Content Warning: Rated PG-13, not appropriate for younger viewers due to violent imagery.
