This is the second in a two-part trailer post (you an find the first part here). This week, I published interviews with Kazuya Shiraishi (Last of the Wolves) and Mayu Nakamura (Among Four of Us). I’ll do my annual London Film Festival and London East Asian Film Festival previews next week. Before then, I have a Heroic Purgatory podcast recording to do and it covers Fruit Chan’s Made in Hong Kong.
I’m struggling for the enthusiasm to make myself go to a cinema. The last time I was in a cinema (or a restaurant, for that matter) was my Japan 2020 trip. I almost went to see James Wan’s Malignant, but put it off. The London Film Festival is teaming up with regional arthouse cinemas to screen a selection of films and Drive My Car, directed by Ryusuke Hamaguchi, is one of them. I might see that at my local arthouse cinema.
To be honest, I am more interested in 80s horror online. I spent most of last year watching that type of movie and I was thinking about continuing it as part of the 31 Days of Halloween challenge. There are many Italian horror movies I want to cover!
What else was released this weekend?
