Portrait of Hell
Armed with a talent that's startlingly pure, Korean painter Yoshihide (Tatsuya Nakadai) can't bring himself to paint a falsehood. So when cruel megalomaniac Lord Hosokawa commissions him to create a depiction of paradise to reflect the nobleman's glory, Yoshihide warns him that all he's likely to produce is a portrait of hell. This nightmarish drama is based on a short story by author Ryunosuke Akutagawa, who also penned the film's screenplay.
