    An extremely cute romcom starring Hiroyuki Sanada and Kyoko Koizumi that I translated. You'll have to find the movie for yourself but my subs can be grabbed here.

    Completely ridiculous in the exact same way that everyone's reaction to finding out Laura Palmer died in Twin Peaks is. Melodrama so OTT but works so well because Sirk has found the tiniest ledge where this kinda thing never turns into a comedy.

    Three on a Match

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    BIG names and short runtime but still takes a while to get good and by good I mean grim as shit. Mervyn LeRoy was a ruthless bastard and loved to see his characters SUFFER and then the code came around and put Hollywood in a safe stasis.

    My favorite piece of Ice Cream Man trivia is that they recently tried to do a Kickstarter for part 2 but only managed to get 4 out of their 300k goal and half of that came from one backer who pledged 2k to pick an ice cream flavor in the movie.

    "With a good script, a good director can produce a masterpiece. With the same script, a mediocre director can produce a passable film. But with a bad script even a good director canโ€™t possibly make a good film. For truly cinematic expression, the camera and the microphone must be able to cross both fire and water. The script must be something that has the power to do this."

    โ€” Akira Kurosawa
