can somebody recommend me academic publication on the role of trains and
railroads in japanese cinema? I am particularly interested by :
- the representation of trains in Anime movies (high tech objects or
- examples of 'detective movies' in which Train timetables and connexions
between trains play a key role in the solution of the investigation (I
remember reading a novel called "tokyo express', by Guy stanley, on that
Also, if somebody can suggest me an essay on the theme of trains in cinema
(not only Japan).
thank you very much in advance.
PS : I cannot recall the name of the japanese movie (is it :"the tatooed
woman"?) where a young woman travelsevery month during one year by long
distance train to have her body tatooed. Does anyone know which movie it
