A couple years back I found on youtube excerpts of the BBC’s “The Strange Case of Yukio Mishima,” a bio-documentary narrated by John Hurt. What a gift! Imagine hearing John Hurt’s voice tell you that upon coming to certain point in life, he became so disgusted over being ugly and weak that he decided then and there to begin lifting weights and kicking ass.

Awesome.

The documentary also contains footage of soldiers laughing at Mishima’s appeal just before he returns inside from the balcony and rocks the seppuku.
