Nikkatsu series rolls along

I'm pleased to be able to announce the first new Nikkatsu Action series screenings of 2008 here. Four of the films in the series will be screened at the University of Wisconsin Cinematheque, in Madison.

February 2nd:
The Warped Ones
Plains Wanderer

February 23rd:
Red Handkerchief
Glass Johnny: Looks Like a Beast


More information about the series can be found on the Cinematheque's website.

We also just had a sold-out screening of Toshio Masuda's Red Handkerchief here in New York at the Japan Society tonight, almost 300 people in attendance. I guess Yujiro Ishihara is still popular!

Masuda's amazing Tetsuya Watari yakuza film Gangster VIP comes next at JS, on February 22nd.

And keep your eye on this page for a lot more screening announcements over the next few weeks. Nikkatsu Action may be coming to a theater near you!

No schedule for yakuza films, but the schedule for the Nikkatsu series - some of them yakuza films, but not all - is available here.

And if you want to stay on top of all the Asian film-related events in Gotham, go to the Subway cinema website and sign up for their weekly newsletter. They won't steer you wrong.
