The writer/director of MONDAY, UNLUCKY MONKEY, and POSTMAN BLUES; Sabu's new film KANISKOSEN recently screened at the New York Film Festival. The film stars Ryuhei Matsuda of TABOO, BLUE SPRING and NIGHTMARE DETECTIVE, and the Auteurs Daily wrote an article about it. Included in the article is a link to a PDF file of the novel that KANISKOSEN is based on. Can you read Japanese? If you can... Well then enjoy what I can't.
There's also a manga (pictured) based on the novel that is very popular and could be worth seeking out depending on how big a Sabu/manga/cannery ship fan you are.
