Suzuki seijun, born 1923, is a film director who started his career in Nikkatsu studio which basically cranked out B-movies. Tired of the monotony of the cookie cutter scripts he began to create surreal and bizarre films using the company time and budget. This eventually got him fired and black listed after the film "branded to kill" was released in 1967.
I was introduced to this director in my Japanese experimental film class.
He never really explains what his work means which draws more interest to his films. The films have a disunity and unique sense of representation.
