KURONEKO (dir. Kaneto Shindo) 1968.
hey there, party people, it’s the first friday of the month and you know what that means… absolutely nothing, because i stick to a schedule about as well as Terrence Malick sticks to, um, a schedule, but enough with the totally forced comparisons, let’s give some free stuff away, shall we?
this month’s giveaway is… wait for it… or just look at the picture above that you’ve obviously already seen… Kaneto Shindo’s giddy / spooky / cat-tastic ghost story, KURONEKO! i added the exclamation point, but this is a movie in which classical filmmaking, wire-fu, and animatronic cat paws co-exist, often within the same shot… so, yeah, i’ll drop some exclamation points wherever i damn well please, thank you ve!!ry m!uch.
TO ENTER, EITHER RE-BLOG OR “LIKE” THIS POST (you get entered once for each action, so feel free to go nuts).
as usual i’ll pick a winner at random from the notes on Monday morning, and the dvd or blu-ray (your choice) will be sent to you directly from amazon on the day of the disc’s release, 10/18. good luck!
