  1. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Ballad of Orin

    I knew Takemitsu's score before I saw the film-- it lends dignity to Orin's bleak trajectory.

  2. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film Ballad of Orin

    interesting counterpoint to something like barry lyndon. bleak yes but also sublime. CINEMATOGRAPHY

  3. Martin Wilson's rating of the film Ballad of Orin

    The best film of 1977 and it's virtually unknown. Stands comparison with the best of Mizoguchi.
