The Warped Ones -- A juvenile delinquent gets out of the pen and immediately embarks on a rampage of untethered anger, most of it directed at the girlfriend of the journalist who helped send him up. The Warped Ones sounded a lost generation's cry for help and was one of the films that kicked off Japan's cinematic sixties with a bang.

good, typical sixties pop film, 2 April 2000
Author: hulstra (hulstra@xs4all.nl) from amsterdam, the netherlands

This film should be well-known, but isn't. It is in many ways the typical sixties Japanese pop-film, combining the best of nouvelle vague (hand held camera, cool-jazz score, moody, young characters) and the Japanese exploitation cinema (lots of violence, sex and rape). It is unknown, probably because of it's raw content. The main line - girl falls in love with the small time criminal who raped her - isn't to the taste of the western public, but is actually handled in a subtle matter. I've seen this one on Something weird video.
