    My 5 favourite films of 1962 not including the obvious out-of-competition status for
    Lean's LAWRENCE OF ARABIA and Miller's LONELY ARE THE BRAVE are :

    BIRDMAN OF ALCATRAZ
    DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES
    RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY
    SEPPUKU
    TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD


    (From 1949 to 1962 any Ozu's movie, with the exception of the unseen MUNEKATA KYÔDAI, would make my 5-titles lists. Because they are all like exquisite variations to each others, with the exception of OHAYÔ, I consider them as a one-and-single outstanding piece of achievement.)

    Angelillo, I'm embarrassed to confess that I've never seen a single Ozu film. My Japanese film viewing is very spotty, confined mostly to Kurosawa and crime films from the 50s through the 70s (Suzuki, Fukasaku, etc.). At least I know I have a lot to look forward to!

    I understand what you mean but no need "to be embarrassed" at all. In a way, I'm the one who should be embarrassed because I tried Ozu's movies many times and it took me years, literally, to eventually enter his universe !

    I used to find his movies a complete bore but I understand now I was simply too young at that time : Ozu's movies need time. Twice. First you have to age, and second you have to accept a slower way to be told a story.

    The great authors you mention are from Japan but I'm not sure they made japanese movies : Kurosawa, one of my beloved film director, had an obvious occidental narrative approach. Suzuki and Fukasaku would focus on a specific genre approach.

    My only piece of advice if you want to try one day a Ozu's movie : begin with one of his four last films and watch it within a cinema theater on a large screen, that is with no possibility to "escape", to be distracted.

    A good Ozu "starter kit" is Criterion's two disc edition that contains both the 1934 A Story of Floating Weeds and the remake from 25 years later, Floating Weeds. There are excellent and informative commentary tracks by Donald Ritchie and Roger Ebert.
