I have just joined the KineJapan list.  I am a new Assistant Professor at
Wesleyan University.  My research area is premodern Japanese literature,
but my teaching interests are fairly broad; I am hoping to offer a course
this coming spring called "Japanese Film," "Japan" in Film -- it will
consider both films "made in Japan" and films made outside Japan which
take "Japan" as their topic.  I am currently trying to put this course
together, and am having some trouble locating a number of hard-to-find
works. If anyone has any tips to share, I would be very grateful.

The films I'm looking for are:
- Kazuo Hara, director; The Emperor's Naked Army Marches On (1987)
- Hirotaka Tashiro, director; Swimming in Tears (Japanese title: Afureru
Atsui Namida, 1992)
- Godzilla, the original Japanese version from 1954 with subtitles, not
the 1956 American remake "Godzilla, King of the Monsters" -- directed by
Ishiro Honda

I need all of the above with English subtitles and in videotape format.
Thank you very much in advance for any assistance.
