Cinema Village
TOTAL DENIAL (2006, Burma, 92 minutes)
Ends November 4
A documentary about 15 Burmese villagers who brought suit against a huge international oil coporation...and won! This is the kind of movie that gets me all weepy. Time Out New York says, “Gutsy, crude and ultimately graceful...” the Village Voice says, “...intelligent and brimming with what can only be called heart.” and Variety say it, “...shuttles between outrage and justice.”

The ImaginAsian
LOVE AND HONOR (Japan, 2007, 121 minutes)
Daily @ 1:30pm, 4:15pm, 7pm, 9:45pm
Yoji Yamada started his samurai trilogy with TWILIGHT SAMURAI, continued with THE HIDDEN BLADE and concludes with LOVE AND HONOR. It’s a revisionist look at Japan’s eternal pop icon, the blind samurai (see: the long-running Zatoichi series) and it’s stunner. Solid, motion picture craftsmanship that tells an actually interesting story, complete with a final blade-flashing blow-out...what more do you want? Reviews have been so-so, but then again most reviewers have had their pleasure centers destroyed by watching movies like 30 DAYS OF NIGHT. See it!

Japan Society
NO BORDERS, NO LIMITS: 1960’s Nikkatsu Action Cinema
This retrospective screens a film a month from the Nikkatsu vaults and it’s not to be missed. The movies have had subtitles made by Subway Cinema’s very own Marc Walkow who will painstakingly run them BY HAND during the screening (we whipped him until he got the timing perfect). This is the genius period of Nikkatsu when they were turning out stylish, jet set, visually jaw-dropping films from directors like Suzuki Seijun (PRINCESS RACCOON) and you really shouldn’t miss this opportunity to see these flicks.

THE WARPED ONES (1960, Japan, 75 minutes)
Friday, November 9 @ 7:30pm
Not so much a crime film as a “youth gone wild and then the world ends” kind of movie, THE WARPED ONES is one of the highlights of this Nikkatsu series. From a director who went on to make family friendly safari films and an actor who went on to become a b-list character actor comes this amazing blast of mind-altering jazz and moral depravity. A response to Godard’s BREATHLESS (which was released in Japan right before this movie started shooting) it follows a juvenile delinquent who takes revenge on the reporter who sent him to prison by raping the guy’s girlfriend...and things go downhill from there. One part black comedy of manners, one part bad boy flick, one part nihilistic plunge into the abyss, it’s a movie that’s jittery and jazzy and that pumps through your veins like cocaine, electrifying your synapses and making you realize that up until now the history of film hasn’t been complete without a viewing of this masterpiece.
