Imamura @ BAM

Who likes gritty?

We do!  We do!

In my pre/post “Host” excitement, one thing I forgot to mention is that the Brooklyn Academy of Music is having an Imamura film festival in their theatres all this month!  Brooklynites rejoice!  (Manhattanites, too!)  Japanese New Wave couldn’t be any closer (than Netflix) or any bigger (than your 60″ plasma screen, ahem)!

Although this will be my first exposure to Shohei Imamura’s work as a leader of Japanese contemporary film – and winner of the Palm d’Or twice – I, for one, am stoked to have access to his oevure.  Because anyone that goes against Ozu, is a hero in my book.
