The critical establishment was clearly not prepared to accept a woman's prison film featuring former prostitutes recovering from venereal diseases, unwanted pregnancies, and estranged lovers. With its cat fights, hysterical tantrums, film noir lighting, and dramatic music, White Beast is indicative of the new influences of the Hollywood psychological thriller on Naruse. Caged (John Cromwell, 1950) initiated a cycle of women's prison movies in the United States that may or may not have been shown in Japan, but the stylistics of White Beast draw on the same paranoid woman's films and film noir conventions that preceded the American cycle.White Beast featuring Mitsuko Miura and Sō Yamamura is not currently available to stream, rent, or buy but you can add it to your want to see list for updates. It's a drama and romance movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 6.7 (104 votes).
