Free Japanese Cinema Book!

The exclamation mark in the thread title is wholly appropriate if you ask me considering that (for a limited time) you can download the entirety of the World Cinema Directory: Japan from the lovely publishers themselves.

Get it here. It's awesome.

It covers quite a vast area so it's not horrifically in depth or anything but they've got some interesting bits and pieces in there along with reviews of key genre pieces. The directors section has a look at Satoshi Kon too which is a bit different from the usual Kurosawa/Ozu norm you get in most Japanese cinema texts.

Thanks for the heads up on that. Could be interesting.
