Talking of more recent films, I would definitely second Somai's work.
He is the best director of the 1980s in Japan in my mind and it is a
tragedy he was not introduced abroad when he was still alive. I love
Ohikkoshi, but earlier works like Taifun kurabu, Shonben raida and
Serafuku to kikanju are brilliant.
