One of the glories of Mubi is the number of superb lists. Japan has been very well served. and by people who know the subject better than i do. So, i thought this collection deserves its own list.
Among my own lists, there’s
Kenji’s Japanese Canon (an introductory overview),
Directors round Mizoguchi (for anyone interested in my favourite director),
Essential Samurai Films,
5 Heroines of Japan’s Golden Age,
How Hara Setsuko Stole Our Hearts,
Kenji’s Japanese Art Gallery,
Films about Japanese Cinema.
Venimos Los Jodimos Y Nos Fuimos: (in Spanish) Entre Geishas, Samurais, Monstruos y Yakuzas
Entre Geishas, Samurais, Monstruos y Yakuzas te Veas: La Antologia en Video . This is an incredible resource of videos of a large number of classic films in full, with collection of colourful posters too.
