I'm not saying...

...I'm just saying.



I've never seen the Criterion offices so starstruck as we all were when the great Tatsuya Nakadai came to visit last Friday. Just so cool. 

(Also: apologies for the infrequent updates. I hope to have time to write a few things this weekend, but I've been absolutely swamped with stuff, including a project very near and dear to my heart that's been in the works for over a year, which hopefully I'll be able to announce soon!)

I read where Film Forum was having the retrospective of his work. Wish I could have attended. Darn you, NYC, you guys have everything.

Coincidentally, I just watched this for the firt time a few days ago and really enjoyed it. What an oddly humorous film. Very quirky.

I really like liked the off kilter design approach you used for the set. Really seemed to suit the films.

Holy cow, and he even wrote "to Eric-san". How cool is that!!!???~!!
You are so lucky to have met him! Nakadai was so under-rated, so in Mifune's shadow in some ways. It amazes me how gracious Nakadai is about Mifune's swordplay skills. Nakadai is such a gentleman! How exciting to have met the last leading man from Japan's golden age of cinema!
