I've long wanted Kiga Kaikyo by Uchida Tomu and
Saito's Tsugaru Jongarabushi to be available to a wider audience

I thought Nankyoku monogatari was beautiful and would have liked to seen 
it on a large screen though it isn't an artsy, philosophical film by any 
stretch of the imagination...

Anything by Terayama Shuji.
