May 10 favorites

I rediscovered Japanese film this month and watched little else. I have not been so excited about film for some time. Expect this pace to continue over the summer.

Of what I watched, I liked:

A Hen in the Wind (1948)

Kochiyama Soshun (1936)

5cm per Second (2007)

A Bloody Spear on Mount Fuji (1955)

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006)

Love Exposure (2008)

[note: the inclusion of anime on this list is not an accident.]

I would hope you do! I haven't seen those two animes, but my sister has, she likes them both... especially The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Maybe I should give them a go.

If your sister has them lying around, you should watch them. Are you not an anime person? I imagine some of them would surprise you, as they have surprised me. (Although others have also confirmed my original prejudice against anime, so approach with caution.)
