  1. knockkneed's rating of the film The Straits of Love and Hate

    surprised to find that it's one of his better films

  2. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film The Straits of Love and Hate

    Sometimes I watch a movie and the thought returns: yes, there are numerous great directors... and then there are the true masters of cinema, who play the game at the highest level, way up there in the "A" league, of which there are probably a dozen or fewer, and even when the print is murky and the subtitles sketchy, the difference between the "A" league and most of the rest is clear as a bell.

  3. Jake Cole's rating of the film The Straits of Love and Hate

    I would probably give this 5 stars if I'd seen a version with legible subtitles. Even so, the staggering formal beauty and emotional subtlety far outpaces his breakthroughs Osaka Elegy and Sisters of the Gion. If someone would do a better translation, I could confirm that it's a masterpiece.
