Late Spring ★★★

Yeah. It's pretty clear Ozu's not for me. I nearly turned this off from boredom about halfway through, but I stuck it out. I don't like Ozu's pace or his cadence. I don't like the performances he gets from his actors (although I do like Setsuko Hara), or the way he frames them. The music in this bothered me a lot, too. It was about some interesting ideas and themes, but at every turn, the way it was presented turned me off. I get why people love Ozu's films, and I'll watch the rest of them from the Top 250, but his work just isn't my thing.

This is my 500th film on Letterboxd, though, so that's cool!
