Well, we're all waiting for Catherine Russell's book on Naruse. Also 
take a look at Mitsuyo Wada-Marciano's dissertation. Susanne Schermann, 
a fellow Kinema Clubber, is one of the experts on Naruse. I know of an 
article in German (see below), but perhaps she can tell us if she's 
published more in her native tongue.

By the way, when you're on this kind of citation hunt be sure to check 
out the Kinema Club Bibliography.  It's been neglected, but before it 
went into hibernation it accumulated a significant number of entries. 
Here is what comes up for Naruse.

(We really should keep this up, don't you think?)


PS: There are some short, but nice, notes in the Ontario Cinemateque's 
program for their Naruse retrospective.
