The Drifting Classroom
Dir. Nobuhiko Ôbayashi, 1987
104 min, Japanese and English with English Subtitles
From the man that brought us Hausu, that trippy horror comedy about the girls in a house haunted by a cat, we get this strange live-action interpretation of the acclaimed manga of the same name by Kazuo Umezu. Surreal might not be a good description, but how else to you describe the plight of a Japanese international school classroom transported to another world in a quantum timeslip mid-song? Either way, if you need to brush up on your Obayashi, class is in session.
