東京物語 | Tōkyō Monogatari

Yasujirô Ozu Japonia, 1953

Duncan Gray's rating of the film Tokyo Story

Yes, it's a masterpiece, but that status is dangerous. Canon-crawlers new to Ozu are most likely to start here, and this supremely low-key classic is not the best entry point: for that, check out something like Late Spring. Then revisit Tokyo Story and believe the hype, as its initially banal interactions build into a rich portrait of an ordinary family and the forces (both natural and societal) that pressure them.
