Kon Ichikawa directed this 1958 adaptation of Yukio Mishima’s The Temple of the Golden Pavilion, about a young Buddhist acolyte held by the police for setting fire to a famous temple. Flashbacks evoke the boy’s unhappy childhood (weak father, overbearing mother), and the fixation he develops on the temple as a symbol of the order and purity missing from his own life. Also known as Enjo. With Raizo Ichikawa, Tatsuya Nakadai, and Ganjiro Nakamura; the cinematography, in black-and-white wide-screen, is by Kazuo Miyagawa (Sansho the Bailiff). 99 min.
