Only now does it occur to me... EMPIRE OF PASSION

Only now does it occur to me... that renowned Japanese arthouse maverick, shrimp tempura fan, and Criterion Collection favorite Nagisa Oshima (IN THE REALM OF THE SENSES, MERRY CHRISTMAS MR. LAWRENCE, BOY, TABOO, MAX MON AMOUR) was capable of deluxe, Lucio Fulci-style eye trauma.

WHAT?!  Look at that... individual blades of grass, dropped down a well by a ghost, plummeting downward, and impaling a woman's eyes.  Christ!  I feel like even a thousand Lucio Fulcis hammering away on a thousand typewriters for twenty years wouldn't have even come up with that one.

Umm...  Bravo?
