SCOUT MAN played at the HKIFF in April, when I interviewed Masato
Ishioka, a former asst to Hiroki Ryuichi. The film had an interesting concept which
wasn't really taken anywhere interesting. I watched the film on VHS at home,
probably a more accommodating way to see it than in a theatre where it would likely
feel very long. I thought a documentary approach wold have been far more
interesting and feel there's probably a fascinating film waiting to be made about
the subject matter.
