Ikimono no Kiroku

Akira Kurosawa Japan, 1955

Franklinton Underground Cinema's rating of the film I Live in Fear

Very interesting companion with Resnais' "Hiroshima, Mon Amour", being that I inadvertently watched them back-to-back. Resnais was much more poetic, in a Malick sorta way, which is a big deal considering the awful images. Kurosawa was very straight forward, very harsh, but very empathetic. Both very claustrophobic, and at times suffocating.
