UGETSU (1953, JAPAN)
My own personal March movie madness. My goal is make 31 posts in 31 days about 31 movies. They all must be non-U. S. films that I haven’t seen before. Why do I make this stipulation? Don’t know exactly, by we all have to have goals, don’t we?

Please excuse me, I'm trying to shake off my Red Sorghum hangover, so to speak. Anyway, moving on. I often have the fantasy about becoming a samurai or having a ghostly Oriental princess fall in love with me for my art. I'm not sure where I'm going with this. I'd like to see some more Mizoguchi. Or something like that. I just know I'm going to be a little punchy until I get to movie 31.
