Article: http://www.tcm.com/t...e/articles.html

"One of the shining lights of Japan's golden age was director Mikio Naruse, who cut his directorial teeth in the waning days of the silent era and rose to prominence under two of the country's biggest studios, Shochiku and then Toho. For the latter he directed the 1953 film Wife (originally entitled Tsuma), a key example of his knack for creating convincing, unflinching working class dramas with unsentimental female lead characters."

Article: http://en.wikipedia....wiki/The_Ascent

& http://letterboxd.co...ilm/the-ascent/

 

"Although ostensibly a war film, The Ascent transcends the constraints of its genre by becoming not only a religious allegory of the relationship between Christ and Judas but also a thinly veiled critique of Soviet occupation."

late Sun., 5-3

 

2:00 AM Seven Samurai (1954)

Japanese villagers hire a team of traveling samurai to defend them against a bandit attack.

DirAkira Kurosawa CastToshiro Mifune , Takashi Shimura , Kuninori Kodo .

BW-207 mins,

"Classic film about 16th-century Japanese village which hires professional warriors to fend off bandits. Kurosawa's "far-east Western'' has served as model for many films since, including American remake THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (a title once given this film for U.S. release). The complete 208m. version is even more impressive for its humanity as well as its powerful action sequences."
