You only need a passing interest in world cinema to realise that no other country makes as many crazy movies as the Japanese. This is a culture which sells used underwear from vending machines and celebrates Christmas with a bucket of KFC, so it isn't surprising they approach filmmaking a little differently. Japan's unique culture is a reflection of its unique history: after centuries of isolation from the outside world, the defeat at the end of the Second World War and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was quickly followed by a huge influx of Western culture. The impact this had on Japanese cinema was enormous, with many films exploring the collective trauma of the war while simultaneously borrowing heavily from American genre movies. Japanese directors have continued to make films which explore the history and mythology of their country to this day, pushing the boundaries (and often the censors) and fusing a wild variety of influences to create some truly unique cinematic experiences. From surreal, erotic animation to disturbing tales of incest, here are ten completely batsh*t crazy Japanese movies you have to see.
