1926-2006

Shohei Imamura, until very recently one of the world’s Greatest Living Directors, has now joined the even-more-esteemed ranks of the Greatest Dead Directors. He reeled out a lot of superb celluloid, and always had that increasingly rare knack for making movies that were formally rigorous and seamlessly innovative, without being self-impressed or pretentious at all. We’ll keep the tribute accordingly to-the-point.

A friend’s comment upon the death of John Entwistle remains relevent here: “Why couldn’t it have been Roger Daltrey?”

On a lighter note, be sure to become friends with Reverse Shot on MySpace! : )
