Two more recent Japanese publications that may be of interest to 

1. Those of you interested in recent cinema might be intrigued by the 
recent publication _Lost in America_, a work on recent American film 
composed of a series of discussions between the directors Kurosawa 
Kiyoshi, Aoyama Shinji, and Shiota Akihiko, the novelist Abe Kazushige, 
and the critic Yasui Yutaka, compiled and "remixed" by Inagawa Masato and 
Higuchi Yasuhito.  The nearly 500 page book focuses specifically on 
Spielberg, Cameron, Kubrick, and the problem of "loss" in recent American 
cinema.  Those working on recent Japanese cinema might be intrigued at 
how directors like Kurosawa, Aoyama, and Shiota interpret American film 
and relate it to their own experience.

between the great cameraman Miyagawa Kazuo and the critic Yodogawa

(Bando) family and Miyagawa's childhood.  Also included is a Miyagawa
