Main Line to Terror

Main Line to Terror ★★★

Even though It’s an imperfect movie, huge plot holes, not the best performances, and weak dialogues, Masumura crafted an incredibly bold film. In Japan criticizing the Shinkansen is like going against the Emperor, and it works, in a broader sense, as a condemnation of the Japanese post war economic miracle. 
Definitely a movie that would never be made today.
