Repertory Series ArchiveTime and Place Are Nonsense! The Cinema According to Seijun Suzuki

Eight Hours of Fear

Buy Tickets


(1957) dir Seijun Suzuki w/Taizô Fukami, Hisako Hara [77 min; 35mm]
When their train is trapped by a landslide, passengers – including a murderer escorted by police officers – pile into a bus to proceed through the rugged countryside. Meanwhile, two bank robbers are loose in the vicinity. As the travelers’ journey continues, the danger mounts and tempers begin to fray. Bizarre camera movements and compositions provide a glimpse of the experimentation that took over in Suzuki’s later films, but EIGHT HOURS OF FEAR stands on its own as a gripping, eccentric adventure yarn.
