Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence

Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence

In this captivating, skewed World War II drama from Nagisa Ôshima, David Bowie regally embodies Celliers, a British officer interned by the Japanese as a POW. Composer Ryuichi Sakamoto (who also composed this film’s hypnotic score) plays the camp commander, obsessed with the mysterious blond major — while Tom Conti is the British lieutenant colonel Lawrence, who tries to bridge the emotional and language divides between captor and prisoner. Also featuring actor-director Takeshi Kitano in his first dramatic role, the film is a multilayered, brutal, at times erotic tale of culture clash, and one of Ôshima’s greatest successes. (Synopsis courtesy of the Criterion Collection) Screening in 35mm
