Midnight Eye Update


Japanese film review site Midnight Eye has just updated with an interview with Lee Sang-Il (SIXTY NINE), a feature on the new book IRON MAN: THE CINEMA OF SHINYA TSUKAMOTO (written by Midnight Eye’s Tom Mes), a few reviews, and a piece on Frankfurt’s “Nippon Connection” film festival.

Speaking of Tsukamoto, last week I watched his latest film, VITAL, which I quite enjoyed. It’s slow going, but there’s something about the pace and the characters that just had me the whole time, and it ended up almost feeling like I was watching a short (meaning it ended too quickly). Of course, it stars my main man Tadanobu Asano, so that also had something to do with it — I could probably watch him sit on a chair and do nothing for 2 hours and still be enthralled.
