Japan Society, NY: Mad, bad, and dangerous to know

I'm not sure exactly how many readers I have in New York, but since I was asked:

20 March
Zatoichi on the Road
Scar Yosaburo

As the Japan Society puts it: The films star Shintaro Katsu and Raizo Ichikawa, respectively, each highlighting the unique skills of their stars, one brutish yet charming, the other suavely enigmatic.

(note: Scar Yosaburo is not available in the Singapore's DVD library at the Esplanade)

March 31 - April 18: Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to know

The Japan Society presents 13 rare films of actresses Ayako Wakao, Meiko Kaji and Mariko Okada. At the opposite end of the stereotype of docile Japanese women-heroic good mothers, chaste daughters and hardworking faithful wives-the three actresses embodied the transgression of limits, breaking rules, flouting norms and generally upsetting everyone.
