日本

you're strange and you're beautiful

To See…

These are some of the movies I have lined up to watch, though I keep seeing more on Toronto J-Film Powow and Nippon Cinema. Curse these sites for constantly highlighting my complete ignorance of Japanese films! The additions to this list will far outnumber those that I add to my Watched list.

I keep coming back to this list and adding things I’ve forgotten as well – I basically never watch movies from any other country!

Note: Every film by Akira Kurosawa is being taken as a given, there’s no need to remind myself

Ah, and not all of these films are necessarily Japanese-related, but most of them are.
