Philip Glass will be present to introduce the film and its score, which is notable as his first composition for electric guitar. This visually extraordinary labor of love interweaves elements from the famous Japanese author's life with several of his stories. Structured around the ultra-nationalist Mishima's ritualistic suicide following the failure of his private army to restore the Emperor's sovereignty, the film entered even more dangerous territory when it openly explored the homoeroticism of Mishima's obsessions with the male body and death. (Paul Schrader, 1985) (1.85:1, 121 min). Recommended Parking: Oxford Road Parking Deck or Fishburne Parking Deck.
