Onibaba (1964) – Movie Wallpaper


The stirring of the gray areas between good and evil in “Onibaba” is astounding. Even more haunting to me is the demon mask on display in the film. It evokes something one might see in the deepest realms of their nightmares. Director Kaneto Shindô realizes the mask so well in the film, that long after the end credits have rolled, the mask might forever be imprinted in your mind. I would also recommend in the first period of dating someone to be sure that the other person doesn’t possess a mask such as this.
