" Few movies are as redolent of their times as 'Funeral Parade of Roses', a 1969 exemplar of Japanese countercultural ferment...retrieved from history's dustbin and digitally restored to its original black-and-white glory... " - New York Times

"Toshio Matsumoto's 1969 film Funeral Parade of Roses is a heady affair, especially when seen in our aesthetically and politically conservative times. It imparts the thrill of witnessing the hedonism and lawlessness both sexual and artistic of a bygone culture. You also feel an almost tragic surge of melancholia watching it: where and when, you wonder, will cinema ever get quite this wild again?" - Film Comment

"50 Years Later, This Transgressive Japanese Drama Is Still a Party and a Procession." - Indiewire
