  1. Anthony De Luca's rating of the film Lullaby of the Earth

    Like much of Masumura's later work this occasionally slips into exploitation territory (Rin's various beatings are particularly gratuitious) but this is also a beautifully crafted and tragic film about the loss of childhood innocence and freedom at the hands of wicked, greedy adults. Harada shines as the feisty Rin, a tenacious young woman who refuses to play by their rules.
