  • Nobuhiro Suwa – M/Other (1999)

    The romantic pretensions of Hollywood to the contrary, love is a very messy business.

One wonders if we ever really do get to know our lovers.Read More »

  • Koji Hashimoto & Sakyo Komatsu – Sayônara, Jûpetâ AKA Bye-Bye Jupiter (1984)

    wikipedia says:
    “Sayonara Jupiter (さよならジュピター Sayonara Jiupitā?, English release: Bye Bye Jupiter) is a 1984 Japanese science fiction film directed by Koji Hashimoto and produced by Toho. The script was adapted by pioneering science-fiction author Sakyo Komatsu from his novel Sayonara Jupiter (1982). The special effects were directed by Koichi Kawakita. Cast with an unusual mix of actors speaking English, French and Japanese, the film was conceived by the struggling Toho film empire as a rival to the forthcoming box office blockbuster hit 2010. The two films bear comparison of plot elements. This was actor Akihiko Hirata’s final film role. He was set to star in The Return of Godzilla (1984), but died of throat cancer before he was cast. In one scene, Captain Hoger Kinn watches Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster, which featured a much younger Akihiko Hirata.Read More »
