JUN ICHIKAWA (1948-2008)

Jun Ichikawa, one of my favorite filmmakers died today at the age of 59. He is responsible for several of my favorite films of the past 10 years (Tokyo Marigold, The Tokyo Siblings, Tony Takitani, and my favorite film of 2008 so far How to Become Myself).

As a filmmaker, Ichikawa had the touch of a Zen master, recalling the genius of Ozu with his minimalist style. He will be greatly missed…
