''HAUNTING, HYPNOTIC, FLAMBOYANT, EROTIC, BIZARRE... SUZUKI!''

After over a decade in the wilderness following his firing from Nikkatsu for Branded to Kill (1967), maverick director Seijun Suzuki returned with a vengeance with his critically-praised tryptic of cryptic supernatural dramas set during the liberal enlightenment of Japan s Taisho Era (1912-26).

In the multiple Japanese Academy Award-winning Zigeunerweisen (1980), two intellectuals and former colleagues from military academy involve their wives in a series of dangerous sexual games. In Kageroza (1981), a playwright is drawn like a moth to a flame to a mysterious beauty who might be a ghost, while Yumeji (1991) imagines the real-life painter-poet Takehisa Yumeji s encounter with a beautiful widow with a dark past.

Presented together on Blu-ray for the first time outside of Japan, the films in the Taisho Trilogy are considered Suzuki s masterpieces in his homeland. Presenting a dramatic turn from more his familiar tales of cops, gangsters and unruly youth, these surrealistic psychological puzzles drip with a lush exoticism, distinctively capturing the pandemonium of a bygone age of decadence and excess, when Western ideas, fashions, technologies and art fused into everyday aspect of Japanese life.

    Confirmed codefree Blu-Ray movies will play on any PS3 or BluRay player. BluRay releases are frequently locked to a specific region of the world by the studios. I list confirmed region-free (regionalcode frei) Blu-Rays and others that are unknown or indicated as region A or region B. Films marked as region free can be played in any Blu-Ray player.

    Regionalcodes werden von Filmstudios benutzt um das Abspielen von Blu-Rays auf eine Weltregion zu beschraenken. Gelistet sind Blu-Rays von denen der Status als regionalcodefrei verifiziert ist, sowie solche, deren Regionalcode A oder B ist, als auch solche, von denen der Regionalcode unbekannt ist. Filme die als codefrei (region free) gekennzeichnet sind, koennen in allen Blu-Ray-Spielern, einschliesslich der Playstation 3, abgespielt werden.
