#214 Mikio Naruse
8-years ago, when I watched When a Woman Ascends the Stairs
, I was very dismissive of it and of Naruse. My review probably reads like I wasn't looking forward to it, and I haven't seen a Naruse since. So this is like a trap I knew I'd be walking into, but I'm more open-minded today.
That gives me a lot of options over what to watch, and his thread
has a good amount of discussion, but I don't want to commit to an Ozu-sized Marathon. A trilogy of titles seems right here.
3. Late Chrysanthemums
5. When a Woman Ascends the Stairs
6. Sudden Rain
I'm using this as a guide, which matches up nicely with ICM, where Floating Clouds
/Ukigumo (1955) is a must. My other two will be...Repast
/Meshi (1951)Late Chrysanthemums
