Coming attraction: At the BFI Southbank in July



The big season seems to be Mikio Naruse, of which I'm ashamed to say I haven't seen any although I have been toying with buying the Eurkea/Masters of Cinema set for quite some time but still haven't got 'round to it.

I wound up seeing nine Naruse films at the Toronto Cinematheque last year, and only wish I had seen nine more. Of the ones I saw, I highly recommend "When a Woman ...", "Flowing," "Late Chrysanthemums," "Repast" and "Summer Rain." The one I most regret missing is "Floating Clouds," generally the one most people cite as his masterpiece. I am hoping against hope that they release it on DVD at some point.
