Labyrinth of Cinema
Directed by Nobuhiko Ôbayashi
(Japan, 2019, Digital, in Japanese with English subtitles)

A Japanese theater screens an all-night marathon of war movies before closing its doors for good. When lightning strikes, three young men from the audience are propelled into the action on screen. An epic time-traveling fantasy with a pacifist message, Labyrinth of Cinema is the final masterpiece from Nobuhiko Ôbayashi, director of cult favorite House (Hausu).
