Yamagata / Ninja bugeicho
Sun Oct 5 16:31:17 EDT 2003
Still kicking myself after discovering yesterday that Michigan has a "fall
break" on the same week as Yamagata... I guess I'll have to go lose my mind
in Detroit rock city instead. I hope you all have fun!
Before I forget --- We screened Oshima's Ninja bugeicho on Sept. 26 for the
CJS film series. We thought it was going to be a subtitled print, but it
turned out to be a dub--actually a sort of "benshi" print, with an
English-language narrator speaking out in the middle of the Japanese
language dialogue, explaining what the characters were saying and doing. It
also seemed to be cut, and only ran about 90 or 100 minutes (although it
felt much, much longer). Does anyone have information about a foreign
release of this film in the 60s or 70s? I had no idea that a "dub" like
this even existed.
