  1. joey Noodles's rating of the film The Fossil

    'Human life is like the flow of a river' I've never seen Kobayashi like this before. The youthful energy and vibrance displayed in pretty much all his early work is suddenly gone, replaced by a wisdom, calm, understanding. A study of death which also manages to criticize traditional Japanese values simultaneously. For a long time this was the one film I wanted to see the most, not his best work but truly monumental.
