‘I like analogue things more than plastic things. But as for picture quality, 35 mm is just half the size it can be, which is an issue for me.‘
This is my 2nd try at going through the filmography of Shunji Iwai, and hopefully more successful than the last. He is a man who has worked in many different genres and has approached all of these with different styles, he is truly a chameleon yet also every thing that he touches is distinctly a work of his own. From his earlier tv-movie to his latest work, filmed entirely as a zoom call, he has always been adventurous with his filmmaking, and he has singlehandedly changed the shape of modern independent Japanese cinema By all sense of the word, he is an auteur, and I hope you enjoy going through his filmography with me.
