gate of truth

Saw Rashomon again. Distorted reality, false flashbacks, simple yet intriguing plotting, Japanese expressionism: it's all there in this great film. Special features: Robert Altman talks about the influence this film has had on him, a bio-minipic on Akira (pronounced A-kee-ya) Kurosawa's cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa.

Got a couple of books from AFPL too: Is That A Gun In Your Pocket?, Rachel Abramowitz's look at women in power in Hollywood; and Colonel Sun, Kingley Amis' sole and admirable contribution to the James Bond written canon.
