The script and direction meld into a strong movie. With charm and humor to spare, this film was among the top echelon of movies from 1976. The characters in this film have a lot of depth, and that makes all the difference. In the end, the audience gets a casserole of film elements and little of the satisfaction that comes from watching these types of movies. I guess if I was in a bad mood, this movie wouldn't be half as good, but I thought it to be enjoyable and would recommend it. This is a story about a place most people might not be able to conceive. It is a powerful film. Many scenes do not feel believable, but good performances help to enhance this story.

Distasteful British film from a Japanese novel about a very troubled young man who comes under the influence of a Hitler-like classmate and plots to harm his widowed mother's lover. A couple of good scenes (Sarah Miles discovering her son has been peeping at her and confronts him in anger, the pasty-faced lad trying to ensnare Kris Kristofferson to his demise by being extra friendly), but what's the point beyond provoking shock? Ugly and uneasy, it doesn't showcase anyone involved to any advantage (especially Kristofferson, whose hollow stares and usual gravelly talk is out-of-place in a psychological mishmash like this one). Coldly without any sense of its own absurdity, director Lewis John Carlino seems to believe a circumstance like this could actually happen. If he's right, that's far more shocking than anything in "Sailor". * from ****

The story of Yukio Mishima's life frankly disturbs me too much to read his work. I know that's no good but that's the way it is. This movie really makes me seriously consider just soldiering through some, though. If Americans do story, Europeans, character, and the Japanese atmosphere then this movie belongs solidly in the Japanese school (in spite of actual production credits). Hardly a minute passes in which you do not find yourself thinking "Hm, what the hell was that all about? I'm scared. Scared of this movie. Scared of English people, children, kitties, beards, death, and the universe." That's a hell of an accomplishment. The end is handled brilliantly.
