“All you need to know about the cutting edge of the new Japanese film genre.  Animated, inventive and imaginative, violent, and cool...a cinema that has reinvented itself.”
—Donald Richie, author of A Hundred Years of Japanese Film

“An informed, opinionated look at contemporary Japanese film, from Suzuki to Miike.”
—Mark Schilling, author of The Yakuza Movie Book

Description

An eye-opening portrait of a vibrant film culture, The Midnight Eye Guide to New Japanese Film is the most comprehensive study of the Japanese filmmaking scene yet written. Tom Mes and Jasper Sharp explore the astounding resurgence of Japanese cinema, both live action and animated, profiling 19 contemporary Japanese filmmakers, from the well-known (Kitano, Miike, Miyazaki) to the up-and-coming (Naomi Kawase, Satoshi Kon, Shinya Tsukamoto) and reviewing 97 of their recent films. With 100+ images from behind and in front of the camera, this is a book any film lover will savor. Foreword by Hideo Nakata, director of Ring.

Tom Mes (in Paris) and Jasper Sharp (in Tokyo) co-edit Midnighteye.com, the premier English-language website on Japanese cinema.
