Are there any Japanese women out there who could point me towards some great films. I'm a huge fan of Takashi Miike (Audition, Ichi the Killer). So if there are any Asami Yamazaki's(I think her real name is Eihi Shiina) out there please contact and hopefully I will keep my head
I hope someone has heard about, in my opinion, Akira Kurasawa, The best director of all time in Japanese films.
Director and author of many films, including, Ran, Rashomon, just do a search on his name Akira Kurasawa.
You will likely have a different perspective of Japanese Serious Films.
His Fans include Francis Ford Coppolla
i love anime, especially miyazaki. most characters have a depth and complexity that you will never find in western animation. my most recent favorite is Great Teacher Onizuka. Both the live action and animation series are so much fun to watch.
for japanese movies, i love battle royale (blood and gore galore!!!) and waterboys.
i'm currently trying to explore korean movies as there are also good ones available, specifically their comedies.
Ever heard of obake (oh bah kay) movies? Those are the Japanese horror
movies...real eerie.Especially those
in black and white.I don't recall any old titles I just recall the creepiness.The modern movie most like
the old obake movies is The Grudge.
As I got older I started to like them.
