Revives the literary masterpiece of the same name in modern-day Tokyo. Beautifully rendered through Usamaru Furuya's striking visuals, this adaptation of Osamu Dazai's self-destructive semi-autobiography draws an eerie parallel to Furuya's own life as a struggling cartoonist. Considered a classic in Japan, Dazai's No Longer Human (New Directions, 1973) details the life of a youth whose traumatic past renders him incapable of revealing his true emotions. Now told through Furuya's eyes, this tragic tale of loathing and suicide is taken to new levels of dismay.
