Happy weekend!

The Real Thing Tsuji (Win Morisaki) and Minako (Akari Fukunaga)

I hope you are well.

This is the follow-up to yesterday’s trailer post. This week I posted interviews with Yutaro Nakamura, director of A New Wind Blows, and Shinji Imaoka, director of A Rainbow-colored Trip.

I watched around ten Stephen Chow films, the 1972 film Bone, and The Quiet Family in preparation for a Heroic Purgatory podcast recording.
