There is a vast sea of Japanese films out there, and I can imagine most of /jp/ has only scratched the surface. What are the qualifications for a "hard to find Japanese film" you ask?
>rarbg, nyaa, kissasian doesn't carry what you're looking for, and pt's don't want your wizardly company
>the movie has no re-releases, or even a home video release at all
>the director doesn't even remember the production of the film you're after
What are some movies you've had interest in, but no way to watch?

This is a good start of a thread, I'm disappointed to learn that even wizchan doesn't have enough actual wizards to have kicked things off.

Please respond if you're still lurking somewhere, I can post my email for correspondence regarding very obscure and untranslated Japanese material.

I'm fairly sure there was a japanese movies private tracker but I can't remember the name. Does anyone know?

>What are some movies you've had interest in, but no way to watch?

I lose interest very quickly if I can't find whatever I'm looking for anywhere.

This kind of think is pretty obscure, and you are casting a net on a very small sample size of users.

Responses will probably be very slow if they come at all simply due to those two factors.
no need to get pissy.

avistaz is a pt for asian movies and tv shows
I've never had issues finding Japanese and Korean movies there but I don't think anything I've watched was particularly obscure either

Responses are slow because nobody here actually knows anything about Japanese culture, beyond the distorted fraction that was filtered through Western perceptions.

Nigger what do you want? Of course no one who is not Japanese or lived in Japan would have a realistic idea of Japanese culture. Get out of here with your retarded high horse you people can discuss movies.

It's not as big of a deal as you make it. But wizchan's clearly not so much wizards as wastes of people.

Ohoho, now you're getting pissy because nobody's an aesthete for obscure no-name Nip movies like you, and getting dangerously close to violating rule 2.

your best bet for obscure japanese cinema is using avistaz.to, its a private torrent site and so far I have found everything I wanted.
Bear in mind however that to get an invite you need to make a discord and watch their server for when they the announce that they opened registration, but its worth it because you can find pretty much everything there.

Crazy movie Hiroku the Goblin. Shinya Tsukamoto directed good movies besides the Tetsuo trilogy

I saw an obscure film called Village of Doom 1983.
It's about the Tsuyama massacre where a young man with TB murdered almost his entire village over the course of a single night. He was ostracized by succubi for having TB.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsuyama_massacre
It's a great film. I like how it takes a very neutral view of the protagonist. It doesn't artificially portray him as a scumbag as he transforms from a nice guy into someone who just snaps.
The last 30 minutes are great. It's frantic and unrelenting as he runs through the town murdering everyone with his shotgun and katana with sadistic glee. There's a lot of first person camera shots too.
Unfortunately the only place I was able to find it was avistaz. It's a great tracker and I got into it pretty easily recently by hanging around on their invite discord server until they randomly did a sign up one day. I love old japanese films so it was well worth it for me. I highly recommend it for anyone interested.

I got in and kicked out due to inactivity few years ago. I'm such a fucking idiot.
