Kismet strikes! It was only a couple of days ago (in this article no less) that we were bemoaning our own lack of familiarity with the Japanese cinema of the Nikkatsu studio. Alas, the BFI have swooped in to the rescue with an promising season of works in celebration of the studio in June.
It’s Suzaki Paradise: Red Signal from Bakamatsu Taiyô-Den director Yûzô Kawashima that intrigues us the most, given the effect that Bakamatsu Taiyô-Den had, but the complete programme in itself looks to offer a mass of riches.
