We’re continuing the Most Dangerous Month with a Japanese cult classic that was effectively banned in the United States for over a decade. Based on the controversial 1999 novel by Koushun Takami, concerns over the film’s violent content and recent school shootings made it difficult to find a distributor, as well as complicated rights issues around the film’s international release.

Now we’re taking a class trip to the island for Battle Royale!
