Using the camera as a pen for writing stream-of-consciousness.
Ozu created eastern cinema aesthetics, a sympathetic narrator.
Spring in a Small Town
The earliest masterpiece of Chinese cinema. The advanced mise-en-scène and camera language paralleled the world cinema at that time. The de-ideological story has kept its aesthetics alive to this day.
Throne of Blood
Incredible ending and eastern mysticism.
The calmness of camera moves and narrative techniques created the unreality in reality.
A City of Sadness
The light of Chinese cinema, directly facing the unbearable history. Magnificent.
The Wind That Shakes the Barley
An unshakable believer fighting for freedom and independence.
A great piece of contemporary juvenile delinquency with extremely elegant structure and mise-en-scène.
A surprisingly breakthrough for Iranian cinema. Deep dissection of social issues and reconstruction of belief.
The contemporary image aesthetics, the self-salvation of human nature in modern society.
