Pulp Excellence
3 October 2006 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

Turner Classic Movies broadcast Goke at 2AM, October 03, 2006 in a gorgeous, widescreen, sub-titled print. It's great that they were able to secure a print of this quality. There are many questions, few answers, in the allegorical script. The last of the J-horrors produced late in the decade, the pulp sci-fi magazine elements are presented in searing colors and psychedelic effects, giving this film an unforgettable visual impact. Great looking women are a major plus. Injecting an anti-war, anti-Viet Nam stance throughout the entire film took a lot of nerve and must have damaged its theatrical distribution with US exhibitors. The movie producers at the Sci-Fi channel should carefully study this film.
