An addendum to Aaron's comment on Shinozaki. He contributed to a special
feature on Japanese cinema in the January-March 1998 Japan Quarterly that
Takeshi Kitano, Linda Erlich and yours truly also wrote for. His essay, on
the tribulations and joys of making Okaeri and promoting it on the
international festival circuit, makes excellent, if depressing, reading.  

As for late breaking news, I heard that he is writing a book on Kitano's
latest film, which is currently in production. No details.
