    Arrow Video US and MVD Entertainment are offering SciFi Japan readers a chance to win their new Blu-ray of Daiei's GIANTS AND TOYS (巨人と玩具, Kyojin to Gangu, 1958), a sharp and snappy corporate satire revolving around the ruthless machinations of a group of admen working in the confectionary industry.

    Masumura's muse Ayako Wakao (THE BLUE SKY MAIDEN, RED ANGEL) stars as Otsuya, the daughter of a rich merchant, who is tempted by her lover, Shinsuke, a lowly employee of her father's, to elope. During their flight, Otsuya's beauty attracts the gaze of Seikichi, a mysterious master tattooist who sees her pristine white skin as the perfect canvas for his art. The image of the large demonic spider that he emblazons across Otsuya's back marks her as the property of another man, radically altering her relationships with all around her as her personality transforms under its influence.

    Available for the first time outside of Japan, IREZUMI sports some of Japanese cinema's most respected talent of its day both in front of and behind the camera. The bewitching cinematography by Kazuo Miyagawa (RASHOMON, UGETSU) captures the sensual atmosphere of the period setting, while the script by Kaneto Shindo (ONIBABA, KURONEKO) lends a modern twist to this feverish meditation on obsession and the act of creation.

    Arrow's IREZUMI Blu-ray offers a new 4K restoration of the film with the original uncompressed Japanese mono audio and optional English subtitles. Bonus Features include a brand new audio commentary by Japanese cinema scholar Japanese cinema scholar David Desser a newly filmed introduction by Japanese cinema expert Tony Rayns, a brand new visual essay by Asian cinema scholar Daisuke Miyao, the Original Trailer, an Image Gallery, and a reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Tony Stella. This first pressing also comes with an illustrated collectors’ booklet featuring new writing by Thomas Lamarre and Daisuke Miyao. The SRP is $39.95.
