An Autumn Afternoon

1962 Japan

For me, the most perfect of the late Ozus.

Further remarks

My list has changed a bit in the last ten years. I have been teaching film and working at Cineaste for 20 years now and interactions with writers and my fellow editors have definitely influenced me. Talking to students and reading their writing has also helped me to see the movies I revere through their eyes. My list reflects my old loves as well as the movies I have come to love.
