Great list, but I'm unfamiliar with #9. Would you post a review?

It's a documentary on a set of famous illustrated scrolls describing an event during the Taira-Minamoto wars (the Genpei Wars). By the time we end the documentary, the film has become both animated (the camera spends a great deal of time moving within the vast paintings within the scrolls), and a meditation on the painter's era and life (during the critical early years of the Tokugawa shogunate) and upon modern Japan.
