Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on the role of violence in japanese cinema Paper must be at least 1750 words. Please, no plagiarized work! Even in today’s world of advanced special effects, CGI and green screen technology, Japan continues to be one of the leading countries in the world where filmmaking is a genuine art form. Japan can boast of such giants as Kurosawa, Susumu Hani, Nagisa Oshima (Yoshimoto, 2000), and other notable worthies who have, in one way or the other, touched, shaped and influenced film making not only in Japan but all over the world. Filmmakers of all nationalities have drawn inspiration from the work of Japanese filmmakers and Japanese cinematic trends have shaped the global filmmaking agency for decades on end.
This distinction of being one of the pioneers of filmmaking and cinema also comes with its unique set of disturbing trends and phases. For instance, Japanese movies, even since the time of Kurosawa’s samurai epics to modern-day classics like “Battle Royale” or “Ringu” have set a disturbing precedent of the mistreatment of the human body. Such mistreatments have ranged from the mildly amusing to the intensely grotesque, from sexual violence to outright mutilation and sadistic violence. In this context, Japanese cinema stands head and shoulders above all other nationalities and cultures, in the sense that not only is such brutal violence unequaled throughout the global filmmaking community, it is also barely censored or checked and instead in many cases encouraged and rewarded.
One of the best ways that one may demonstrate marked phenomena in a cultural or technical trend is to find its simile or parallel and provide commentary and analysis of that. Similarly one of the ways in which we can analyze the role of violence in Japanese cinema is to select one such example from its many productions and analyze the violence and graphic imagery in that very same example. .For instance, we may choose Kurosawa’s samurai epics and look at the use of violence, particularly in relation to the sword fighting duels therein, or we may choose one example from the many productions of Japanese horror stories and look at the targeted.
