I've seen In the Realm of the Senses and would agree that it's well done, and as you've said, not for everyone. I note that when this was imported into the U.S. back in the day, they had to cut a few seconds, lest they run afoul of U.S. child pornography laws. To this day, I think that it still has some strong, explicit images.

The Laughing Policeman (1973)

"In San Francisco, one victim in a mass murder is a police detective. His partner and a new partner investigate in the city's seamy side." (IMDb)

Great crime drama directed by Stuart Rosenberg and starring Walter Matthau, Bruce Dern and Louis Gossett Jr among others.

The story is based on one of the swedish Martin Beck novels written by Sjöwall & Wahlöö.
Loved the slow tempo, the San Francisco scenery looks awesome as always and the cast rocks. Recommended!

I think that The Laughing Policeman is quite underrated. People always remember Walter Matthau for his funny roles with Jack Lemmon. He was a consummate dramatic actor too. And you have Dern and Gossett, a "Swedish mystery novel" source, and San Francisco scenery. (Was there a more beautiful, photogenic city in the U.S. in the mid-70s?) What else do you need? An excellent film, worthy of rediscovery.

Matthau was awesome and of course he never laughs [Smile]
Frisco just rocks and i really liked that there was no studio settings used. Only real locations and interior scenes filmed in those same locations.

Matthau also starred in the classic crime thriller Charley Varrick the same year as he did The Laughing Policeman.

Don't miss out on the upcoming UK blu-ray from Powerhouse Films' Indicator Series next month !
