Taboo (Gohatto)

Longtime Japanese filmmaker Nagisa Oshima (In the Realm of the Senses) contributes his first film in 14 years, a sly, humorous and frequently erotic look at the "don't ask, don't tell" policy of ancient samurai. Set in a military school during the 1800s, Taboo tells the story of a magnetic youth who possesses unusual beauty and is admitted to a training program for young warriors. The innuendo flies fast and furious as our hero inspires lust among his confused comrades. Famed filmmaker Beat Takeshi (Takeshi Kitano) is among the cast. In Japanese with English subtitles. 100 minutes
