Inner Beauty Radiates in ‘Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters’

Criterion always produces beautiful DVD packages, but this new box is one of their most stunning yet: a riot of gold lacquer and hot pink, blazing flowers, and chilly black-and-white. In other words, the design and booklet—including an excellent essay by Kevin Jackson—are every bit as wild and neon-nutso as the project itself: Paul Schrader’s extraordinary, lavishly impressionistic tribute to the Japanese auteur Yukio Mishima.
