Mobile Kino Presents:
Funeral Parade of Roses (1969)
(Japanese with English Subtitles)
Funeral Parade of Roses follows Japanese drag queen Eddie through her crazy lifestyle in the Japanese transgender underground of the late 60’s. In this avant-garde remake of Oedipus Rex Eddie has upset the madame of her house by stealing the affections of the madame’s boyfriend. Eddie falls in love with and seduces the father figure and Oedipus plays out in the context of the swinging ‘60s, high style and well heeled.
Funeral Parade of Roses famously inspired Stanley Kubrick’s style in A Clockwork Orange and you can see many moments and ways Kubrick borrowed liberally from it.
