I'm for more and more films made in Japan.  Survey says that is what the people want.   Power to the people.

.This is typical of Hollywood greed and selfishness, beside over playing the winners.

 

TCM is based in Atlanta, not Hollywood.

 

 

One day Hollywood will be pressured  by the public to put out more variety or no more money Serve all consumer of classic film or else.  

 

 

This, after the second-ever biggest summer movie season.

Note that TCM aired the old 142-minute version, not the 162-minute director's cut that was restored in 2010.  Both versions are available on DVD from Criterion.  The longer version is also on Criterion Blu-ray.

 

Wow, a 162 minute version of the movie. 

Well, it is the director's vision.

Well, as I recall, the book is pretty darn long, too.

 

I had a hard time getting through it. The first third was interesting and I liked the writing. Then the bottom fell out of it for me. It would have helped to know and not just casually but quite well, what was going on in Germany at that time. Not just surface material but in depth. There were many allusions I'm sure that the casual Deutsche-o-**** may not have got ... and for a general reader like myself, forget it. I don't think it is an easy book.
