This is the second part of the trailer post. The first part is here. This week, I posted a review of Out of Tokyo 202x and an interview with Akinori Ikuse, its director. I also posted about the Chicago Japanese Film Collective and the films that can be streamed/watched there.

Currently underway are the Cannes Film Festival and the Korean Independent Animation Festival which is live in Japan and gives viewers the chance to stream films via Vimeo. A festival pass can be had for 2,000 yen. Cannes is totally in-person and totally for cool people ;_;

Mawaru Penguindrum

I hope you are well.

This is part two of the trailer post following yesterday’s opener. This week, I posted a news article about the release of Zokki and I also posted a great interview with the filmmaker Daisuke Miyazaki. It has been a low-energy week/year for me but I do have more in the pipeline.

One thing I will write about is the free films that are currently on offer with the Short Shorts Film Festival and Asia 2022 which are available to an international audience. Just sign up to watch a collection of shorts, including Boy Sprouted, which I saw at the Osaka Asian Film Festival.

To cap it all off, I talked about Drive My Car last night for the upcoming episode of Heroic Purgatory. Also mentioned were other adaptations of Haruki Murakami’s stories, Norwegian Wood, Tony Takitani, and Burning. I also talked about Archive 81, the Ti West horror film X, and the first episode of the TV adaptation of Halo.

I am struggling with energy levels lately so posts have been patchy. I did one about the release of Onoda: 10,000 Nights in the Jungle and I also posted my review of Howling and an interview with the director, both of which are released this weekend in Japan.

What I have been watching is connected to a Heroic Purgatory podcast based on the Academy Awards.
