  1. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film A Straightforward Boy

  2. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film A Straightforward Boy

    I found this incomplete work to be very entertaining and having the potential to have been something greater then what is left, which is the feeling I get from all of Ozu's mostly lost works.

  3. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film A Straightforward Boy

    Like I Graduated, But... only parts of this film remain but what's left is a pretty entertaining comedy about two would be kidnappers who are too soft-hearted to cope with their demanding victim.

  4. AKFilmFan's rating of the film A Straightforward Boy

    The gags (mostly) hit their mark, but this Ozu short isn't great. But its a dent film all-around.

  5. Stevie's rating of the film A Straightforward Boy

    Entertaining, early Ozu.

  6. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film A Straightforward Boy

  7. Jazzaloha's rating of the film A Straightforward Boy

    A Japanese version of Ransom of Red Chief, with excellent slapstick humor.
