anonymous asked:

hi! (im sorry if youd rather not get asks like this, its totally ok if u dont answer) do you have any film recs from the japanese new wave? im pretty interested in it but i dont know where to start (in fact if you have reading recs itd also be great?) thanks a lot, i love you ozu-teapot!

Thank you! As for the Japanese New Wave here are some of my faves (I’m doing this from memory so I’ll probably forget  some great director or great films!):

  • Toshio Matsumoto: Funeral Parade of Roses. I mention Matsumoto first because he died just a couple of days ago and you’re probably seeing lots of caps from Funeral Parade of Roses on tumblr at the moment. I haven’t seen any of his other films but Roses is great.
  • Shōhei Imamura: Pigs and Battleships, The Eel, Warm Water Under a Red Bridge, The Profound Desire of the Gods, Vengeance is Mine. Coincidentally (and randomly) I started a personal Imamura retrospective this month to catch up on his films I haven’t seen and revisit the ones I have.
  • Hiroshi Teshigahara: Pitfall, Woman of the Dunes, The Face of Another.
  • Nagisa Oshima: Death by Hanging, Double Suicide: Japanese Summer, In the Realm of the Senses.
  • Yoshishige Yoshida: Heroic Purgatory, Eros + Massacre, Coup d'État.
  • Masahiro Shinoda: Himiko, Double Suicide, Assassination, Silence.
  • Seijun Suzuki: Tokyo Drifter, Branded to Kill, Tattooed Life, Youth of the Beast.
  • Kaneto Shindo: Onibaba, Kuroneko, The Naked Island, Hokusai Manga (AKA Edo Porn)
  • Masaki Kobayashi: Kwaidan, Harakiri, The Human Condition trilogy.

As with all film “movements” and genres it can often be debatable how much certain directors or their films are part of it, or associated, or just similar (Shindo, Kobayashi, and Yoshida perhaps being the most dubious here) but all these films are well worth watching IMO.

Captain America: Civil War SPOILER (FULL) SUMMARY-REVIEW

I had a pleasure of watching an early Midnight 3D Screening in an IMAX near my place, and dang it was definitely worth it.

Now keep in mind that I am not much of a writer so I’ll be writing/typing this review the best way I can. I also “highlighted” all the important parts because this is LONG.
( I typed this without edits so I apologize for any errors if there’s some.)

DO NOT READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE SPOILED

steve seeing an elderly woman hovering after the funeral. when he approaches her, she gives him a smile.

‘can i help you with something, ma’am?’

the woman shakes her head slightly. ‘oh no, sonny. i was just thinking.’

steve smiles gently and takes a seat in the pew beside her.

‘about what?’

‘all of the times she made me smile,’ she says wistfully. steve’s stomach twists painfully. ‘we- we shared an apartment, and she, we…’

it clicks with him, suddenly. this is- oh, he’s so stupid. ‘you’re- you’re angie, right? ms. martinelli?’

‘that’s me,’ she says, looking at him with a gentle smile. he returns it easily.

‘peggy told me so much about you. it’s an honor to finally meet you. it would- it would mean a lot to her, to know that you were here.

‘i loved her,’ she says with tears in her eyes. steve takes her hand, squeezes gently and kisses her cheek. he’s not surprised to find that they’re damp with tears, mirroring his own.

‘i know, angie. i loved her too.’ he says.

they sit like that for a little while longer. just the two of them, holding onto each other and understanding, in a way that no one else would ever be able to.

the two biggest loves of peggy carter’s life; the ever so understanding best friend turned lover, and the man out of time.
