A shame Mommy isn't on the roster, but apparently there's been some hostility towards Dolan's work in the NYC critic scene.

Richard Attenborough passed away.

He was damn old, but death is still sad, anyways.

Lynch is hilarious.

Sometimes a director comes up that you just have to wonder what the hell it took you so long to start digging into his filmography. Yasujiro Ozu is the latest example. I've seen Late Spring, Early Summer, Tokyo Story and Tokyo Twilight, and I consider three of those to be pretty much masterpieces. I'm watching An Autumn Afternoon today. Any recommendations beyond that are most welcome.

I own Criterion's Late Ozu set and everything in there is great. You already have a couple mentioned, but Equinox Flower, his first color film IIRC, is essential stuff.

Also, Floating Weeds from 1959.

All but a couple of his later films are outstanding, and you can't go wrong, but don't neglect earlier films. His silents are some of the best of the era, such as I Was Born, But..., Tokyo Chorus, and An Inn in Tokyo. the pre-war talkie There Was a Father is one of the most concise and heartbreaking films ever made. Masterpiece. Also the somewhat neglected post-war Record of a Tenement Gentleman and A Hen in the Wind.

They're still good, but The Flavor of Green Tea Over Rice and The Munekata Sisters aren't particularly outstanding, though the latter has a lovely performance by Hideko Takamine. But then you could also watch any of her multitude of Naruse films of which she and the film itself are supremely more powerful.
