Woman in the Dunes

Woman in the Dunes ★★★★★

June 2016 Movie Watching Challenge: June 1 - A Film in The Criterion Collection

Amazing. Only fitting Woman in the Dunes is the highest rated Teshigahara on Letterboxd: it's much more straightforward than his other two feature films, but still carrying all his trademarks: an experimental soundtrack, impressive cinematography and a brilliant script by Kôbô Abe. I've always been creeped out about deserts, but Teshigahara makes me scared of people a little bit more.
