First, Japanese filmmaker Shohei Imamura explores life on the lower rungs in "Pigs and Battleships" (1961), where a Japanese port town acting as host to an American naval base is populated by morally bankrupt citizens like the young Kinta (Hiroyuki Nagato), who boasts of his status as a hog seller for the black market.
