Why Mishima: A Life In Four Chapters Is The Greatest Biopic About A Writer I’ve Ever Seen


I’m a writer. I mean, duh. I’m writing this article, aren’t I? But, outside of penning articles, I also write novels. 

And, as a novelist, I love watching movies about us. I’ve seen some great ones over the years, like Adaptation (which is my favorite Charlie Kaufman movie), The End of the Tour, Capote, etc. But, when it comes to what I think is the greatest movie about a writer that I’ve ever seen, I have to go with Paul Schrader’s 1985 biopic, Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters.

Chronicling the life of Japanese author, Yukio Mishima, A Life in Four Chapters is unlike any other biopic that you’ve likely ever seen, and I need to talk about it.
