This week I continue my Akira Kurosawa season by watching No Regrets For Our Youth starring Setsuko Hara, a regular in Ozu’s films, and I believe the focus of Satoshi Kon’s anime movie Millenium Actress. Only two Japanese films get a theatrical release today which means that I’m bulking the post out with an extended trailer for Wong Kar Wai’s forthcoming film, The Grand Master.
What about the Japanese box office from last weekend? Unfortunately there are only two Japanese films in the top five. Phoenix Wright has dropped from 5 to 7, Arakawa is at 12 and Berserk is nowhere.
01. In Time
02. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
03. Always: Sunset on Third Street 3
04. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
05. The Wings of the Kirin
