This month Channel Neco has started its run of 40 Suzuki
Seijun films to celebrate the 50th year since the
director's debut. They've produced a decent 15m extended
adumentary that covers his career with soundbites from
actors such as Shishido Jo, key crew members, critic
Osugi-chan (ugh) and the man himself, with clips from the
upcoming "Operetta Tanuki Goten" (Princess Raccoon). They
aired "Koroshiya Rakuin" (Branded to Kill) today. It still
holds up! (an understatment)



Daniel, you may be interested in subscribing to the Nihon
Eiga Senmon Channeru, which exclusively airs Japanese
films. You can get it through JCom and probably other
providers. They're currently running a 3-month Okamoto
Kihachi retro.


In the photo he looks like Sam Peckinpah. Or was it
Peckinpah that aped him?
