This is one of my favorite japanese movies.
Is about teenagers finding meaning in music, getting obssesed, and talking about it in a BBS while everything in their real lifes seems to go bad.
Very atmospheric too, with some scenes featuring only the characters listening or playing music.

Well, the director's cut is very long ( 3 hours and a half) and i have to admit it got me mad when i saw it because i felt it was unnecesarily long, afterwards i realized that is just like 2 films in one, with the first one being about the main character losing everything (not that she had much to begin with) due to her dumb lies and lack of trust, and the second one about she regaining something back by making her first real friend.
In conclusion, is a nice film but i don't think it's a masterpiece nor particularly beautiful, but if you liked his older stuff i am sure you will enjoy it.

Zigeunerweisen: Second Seijun Suzuki's film and first in his "Taisho trilogy" after his 10 years ban for daring to film Branded to Kill, which was his first arthouse film after being a B-movies director.

The plot in Zigeunerweisen is very nonsensical but a lot of the things that happen in the screen are there to confuse the viewer or the characters, for example through the film we see many 'repetitions' of previous scenes but they contain some subtle differences.
It deals mostly with the relationship between the 2 main characters (and the women around them, in particular they get involved with each others wifes, or do they?), Aochi who is an scholar in the military academy and Nakasago, his ex-colleague, who quit to travel around japan and fuck women, and is strongly suggested that he has also killed some of them.
Also Nakasago develops a bone fetish early on.

The US soldiers in this film were hilarious, like bad video game AI.

I liked when they hopped out of cover just to charge a banzai charge using their Thompsons as clubs, and when the civilians wouldn't strip naked and leave a cave they threw white phosphorus down into it to gas them all.
Also liked how the Okinawan civilians got on their knees and BEGGED the Japanese soldiers to LET THEM kill themselves at every opportunity.

It tells 2 different stories about cops that just got out of a relationship. The first one happens at night, and the guy is waiting for his ex to call him to get back together, while he collects expired pineapples cans. After a while he falls in love with a smuggler that is not very interested in him, and things happen i guess.

Woman in the dunes: MC is a cool teacher that takes a 3 day permission to capture sand bugs. He sleeps for a while on the sand, and because it's too late to go home on that day one villager has the great idea that he spends the night on the house of a woman. (There are no inns or hotels because the village is poor).

The night goes on normally. The woman is a widow and talks some shit about sand rotting stuff. Apparently she works at night shoveling sand outside so her house doesn't get buried. Then the next day these crazy villagers remove the stairs and leave him trapped down there. They want him to become a couple with the woman and help her shovel sand.

I was exploring/researching Chinese movies before I lost the motivation to watch films but couldn't really get into the films of more well-known directors. There are two films I found back then that I enjoyed and would like to recommend to anyone who are interested. Kaili Blues and Yi Yi, Kaili Blues is aesthetically gorgeous and shows a glimpse of life in the more remote regions of China. The premise of the film is about a man on a journey to find his lost nephew. It has a surreal and dream-like presentation. Yi Yi is a Taiwanese film that grapples with the struggles of a middle-class Taiwanese family through the eyes of the members of the family of different generations. It has wistful and existential qualities and portrays the dynamics and structure of asian society and life aptly.
