Third and final posting for the day --
Shinobu Yaguchi's "Waterboys" is due out on 3-21. It is supposed to have
The Kon Ichikawa collection coming out on 3-22 will contain three
films:"Akatsuki no Tsuiseki," "Koibito," and "Okuman-choja". These are
listed as being 4:3 format, and there is still no mention of subtitles.
The Hiroshi Teshigahara set scheduled for April will contain four films:
"Otoshiana", "Suna no Onna", "Tanin no Kao", and "Summer Soldier". They
are described as being in 16:9 LB Vista format, and only Japanese
subtitles are mentioned.
I finally got my copy of Jun Ichikawa's "Tokyo Marigold" -- it's an
excellent DVD of a fine movie. As extras, it has interviews with Rena
Tanaka, Jun Ichikawa and the male star (name slips my mind). It also
has a (presumably) complete set of the seasoning ads featuring Rena
Tanaka and Kirin Kiki. ;~} On a technical note, it does have the
promised English subtitles, but these have to be turned on via the menu
before starting the film (for some reason the "sub-title" button doesn't
work on this release).
