To Live is To Learn: Kenji Mizoguchi on screen, on DVD

An e-conversation between Ryland Walker Knight and Steven Boone

[To read the exchange, click here, and you will be redirected to The House Next Door. I've been busy as of late what with summer school and the Rivette marathon masterpiece and life but I promise more writing will be hitting the interweb soon, including my ever-growing reflections on Out 1, plus, you know, a certain TV show that just ended. And, dun-dun-dun: my first real attempt to write about Tarkovsky. Now if only I knew how to balance these projects a little better and procrastinate a little less.... Thanks for staying tuned. Summer is proving more difficult an environment than expected, no matter how useful and beautiful and warm.]

[Here's a clip from one of Ugetsu's final scenes. If you have not seen the film, do yourself a favor and skip the clip. Otherwise, enjoy the movie magic: it is nothing if not truly awesome, and tender.]
