Belladonna of Sadness

Starring: Aiko Nagayama, Masaya Takahashi, Shigako Shimegi, Takao Ito, Tatsuya Nakadai

Psychedelic animated feature from the LSD side of things, and almost water-coloured in aesthetics. An innocent attacked gets magical revenge. A pivotal moment in animation, long forgotten but now hailed as the genius work it is – you gotta see it.

Trigger Warning: rape scenes
