Celluloid Dreams The Directors Label

   

Acclaimed director Makoto Shinozaki (Okaeri) adds style to the making-of documentary on Takeshi Kitano’s Kikujiro. Dropping cliches such as narration and excerpts, Shinozaki helps the viewer feel like actually being on the set: Kitano behaves inspirationally at times, and comically at others, in giving instructions to the crew members, technicians engage in heated discussions on set design… Taiwanese film great Hou Hsiao-Hsien visits his friend Kitano during post-production.
