sweet blog...
i'm a fan of your taste in films, and as i was scrolling through your old posts, i came across one about bujalski's "funny ha ha"

just wanted to let you know that the last time i checked you could get copies of his dvd that he's self-distributing on ebay.

anyway, i'm a big fan of asian cinema, especially the films of ozu and hirakazu. i haven't seen any mizoguchi, so of his films, what do you recommend as a good one to start with?

yeah, I just saw Funny Ha Ha on Tuesday. It rocked.

Uh, about Mizoguchi - it really depends on what you can actually FIND. Criterion just released his Ugetsu, so I would start with that. The most acclaimed Mizoguchi movies are Ugetsu, Sansho the Bailiff and Story of the Last Chrysanthemum. These are all very good indeed. Then I like Utamaro and his 5 Women and his Sisters of the Gion.
