I hope you are well.
This is a bit of a procrastination day. Finished work, did some gardening, watched an episode of The X-Files.
This week I wrote about the Heroic Purgatory podcast recording I did that covered the Japan Society’s retrospective of Kazuo Hara and Sachiko Kobayashi’s films. I then wrote a review for their films The Many Faces of Chika and A Dedicated Life. I wanted to cover Reiwa Uprising but that’ll have to be for next week.
This week I watched Shin, Shin, Shin (2011) and Antonym (2014) from Japan, Symptoms (1974) from the UK, and I started season 1 of The X-Files. I forgot just how much of a procedural/office drama it was at a first. That stuff is really good! I watched it when it first came out so revisiting it has been a nostalgia trip.
What is released this weekend in Japan?
