I wondered about that. It really had a strange feeling to it, almost sepia
without being sepia.

Tamura surprised me last year by saying---just before Eureka previewed (even
before it finished editing!)---that of all the films in his long career, he
was most proud of this film. I can see why.

Dennis, I didn't understand your, "just look at any Wings of Desire print"

By the way, while we're on the Fukasaku discussion, I might add that Tamura
was slated to shoot one of his films a couple years back. He actually
started the production, but quit in the middle. Apparently, he just didn't
fit into the mainstream crew culture.
