    Pastoral: To Die in the Country is another great piece of surreal film-making from Shuji Terayama. The film is about a young Terayama who appears in whiteface along with his mother. The young Terayama deals with his sexual hang-ups due to the onset of puberty. He also slowly drifts away from his clinging mother. The village which he lives in is the most delightful sight in the film. Their are strange denizens who populate the village. The one memorable group is the circus troupe which is shown in a spectral, prism filter tone to add life to their profession. Close to the middle of the film, Terayama has an actor playing himself interrupt the film saying that the rest hasn't been edited yet, he soon enters the film he is shooting and interacts with his former self.

    This is one of the best surreal film ever made right along Alejandro Jodorowsky's "Fando and Lis", Frank Zappa's "200 Motels", and Wojciech Has's "The Saragossa Manuscript." The film is based on Terayama's original play and series of his haiku about his childhood (IMDb's biography on Terayama is excellent and will give you in-depth view of Terayama's art.) The film has timeless Freudian theme about the adolescent trauma, loss of innocence, and deconstruction of self and memories.
