    Woman of Tokyo


    Features a fairly insane scene where Ozu just shows nearly the entirety of Lubitsch's top shelf section from If I Had a Million — whose poster appears in one of his earlier films, I forget which — but cuts away before it gets to its famous punchline. Possibly because this film's silent where as the punchline is a line delivered in synch sound? As a joke? Ozu's a funny guy.

    More fast-paced than inspired but it gets the job done as a kind of lighthearted proto-Wolf of Wall Street. George Sidney — short, stocky, easily flustered, playing someone who’s both a hustler and a schnook, and the uncle of his namesake, who went on to direct Annie Get Your Gun and Bye Bye Birdie — is fucking funny. Good Guy Kibbee shit too.

    Review here. Still sad there's not a part where someone says, "Welcome to the punch!", then punches that person.
