Sad to hear of Morisaki’s death. His comedies were different from Yamada’s, even though they worked together for a time. He tended to focus on marginal, nomadic, and sometime multi-ethnic communities, in a satirical sometimes acerbic way. He is definitely one Japanese director virtually unknown abroad whose work deserves far more attention. 

Fujii Jinshi edited this critical anthology on Morisaki’s work, which is a good place to start:
