Robinson's Garden

Robinson's Garden ★★★½

unlike most punk cinema of its time - take the same year's Dudes or Surf Nazis Must Die - the character(s) of Robinson's Garden seem more concerned with forging their own path rather than rebelling against whatever the dominant ideology is; Yamamoto's film does something similar, never truly giving the audience what is expected from a film that could be reduced to a "80s Japanese punk film" and offering something a lot more contemplative (and a lot more about nature) than any preconceptions may lead the viewer to alongside a color palette that more so resembles mid-to-late 60s Godard than the films of, say, Alex Cox
