Ugetsu monogatari

Kenji Mizoguchi Japan, 1953

joey Noodles's rating of the film Ugetsu

One of my favourite films. However, it would be in my top 10 if the ending were bleaker (not that it isn't already, but I read somewhere that in the original version that Mizoguchi wanted Tobei's fate was a lot shittier). But still, Mizoguchi's second best film and a monumental achievement of cinema, it is a film that I wish went on for 4 hours!
