"Aliens from Planet X borrow our monsters for a little extermination project, but they've got something else up their sleeves: world domination. Using mind-control technology, these vinyl-and-sunglasses wearing spacemen turn Godzilla, Rodan and Kiing Ghidorah loose in Japan, demanding Earth's surrender! It's up to American astronaut F. Glenn, his galaxy-trotting buddy Fuji, and nerdy inventor Tetsuo to break the aliens' hold on the monsters and save our planet from certain doom. Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965) represents the pinnacle of Toho's monster cinema, with an all-star cast featuring Nick Adams (The Rebel), Akira Takarada (the original Godzilla) and Kumi Mizuno as alien temptress Namikawa, plus a cavalcade of amazing retro-terrific special effects. Presented in its original, uncut Japanese-language edition, plus the English-dubbed version originally titled Monster Zero in the U.S."--Container
Bara no sōretsu = Funeral parade of roses by Toshio Matsumoto( Visual )

13 editions published between 1969 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An evocative journey through Tokyo's underground gay and transvestite club scene in the Shinjuku district. Director Matsumoto mixes documentary footage of street theater with staged scenes of Japanese youth culture as it existed in Tokyo in the late sixties. We follow Eddie, a popular young transvestite as he travels from bar to bar, eventually ending up in a drug fueled dance party where a game of spin the bottle leads to an orgy. The following day we observe Eddie and his two friends as they go shopping for womens clothing in a Tokyo shopping mall. As Funeral Parade of Roses progresses, the professional rivalry between Eddie, who dresses as a modern woman and his rival, a drag queen who prefers to dress as a traditional geisha, escalates as they vie for the attentions of cabaret manager Gonda. Funeral Parade of Roses is often cited as a major inspiration for Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange
