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…

A2P Cinema -- Website Reconstruction

A2P Cinema has been revamped to a simpler format. For the time being the site will only contain top 10 lists for every year. In time the film summaries and pictures will return, along with the hope of a larger database of films (perhaps 20-30 for each year). Please be patient as the website, much like others within the A2P Cinema network (Ozu-san, Profane Angel, In the Mood for Images), will hopefully improve soon.
