Trivia:

Trained, as a youth, in a Christian seminary for the priesthood in Japan. However, while he was there, something happened (which he refuses to discuss publicly) that shattered his religious leanings. He remains fascinated by Christianity, however, and often alludes to the Bible in his films. There is some debate among his fans about whether Angel's Egg (1985) is an allegory for his loss of faith.
