    Love Exposure (2008)............. 9/10
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1128075/
    A bizarre love triangle forms between a young Catholic upskirt photographer, a misandric girl and a manipulative cultist. This movie has it all - catholic priests, cultists, perverts, upskirt photographers, erections, double identities, transvestitism, but above all, it is a love story. It is mix of genres, going from comedy to serious. I have never seen anything like it. The movie has 4 hours, but there was not a single moment, where I would be bored. This would be a perfect movie for teenagers.

    Kenji Mizoguchi's "Sansho the Bailiff":

    At times gut wrenching. Excellent film. The movie ends on the 'high note' of shared despair and loss.

    quite entertaining Taiwanese supernatural mystery scifi horror ghost story
    East Asian Horror movies are in their own league. Recently watched the original Ringu again scary but good.

    Last film I saw was on Sunday we watched Charlotte’s Web (1973) such a underrated animation. We both cry every viewing Charlotte has the same type of voice as my Mother very claiming.

    Sansho the Bailiff looks interesting can’t believe I’ve not seen it. Does Criterion still have it in print?

    I just took another look at this post. I am a fan of Andrew Garfield. Then I noticed "A Film By Andy Serkis". He's moving into directing? I'll have to check this out when I get a chance.

    Takashi Miike's "13 Assassins":



    Absolutely classic chambara film. Miike hits every beat: cast, script and action all deliver.

    I saw it a couple of years ago. It was not bad. My favorite samurai movie is the Samurai Trilogy about Miyamoto Musashi from 1954-1956. There is not so much fighting, but it is beautifully shot.

    I’ve watched two enjoyable movies this week, “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and “Mortal Engines.”

    I've watched "13 Assassins" several times now. As you say, the Toshiro Mifune Trilogy is an excellent set of movies. Are you familiar with this set:



    This is a 5 movie series that was produced in Japan in the 60's. Having more film time, the story more closely follows Eiji Yoshikawa's novel. Highly recommend!

    PS: I don't actually have a single favorite samurai movie. But if I were to list several, "Sword of Doom" would be in the list along with Yojimbo, Sanjuro, 7 Samurai, 3 Outlaw Samurai, etc.

    no, not familiar with it. I did not even know that it exists. I will bookmark it and possibly watch it at some point.
    I also remembered the Zaitochi series of films about the blind masseur/samurai
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zatoic...eries_of_films
    but I have seen only a couple of those and they were pretty good
