I can't say I thought any blanks were filled, so to speak. The whole thing felt more fragmentary than that. I appreciated the ticket collector part because the film stayed with him and focused in on the characters surrounding him for a sustained period of time, plus the scenes just did more for me, subjectively.

Director of the Month Club

I am only a link in the chain of world culture; and if that is not so, then all my work is rubbish. As a matter of fact, I strive to find ties with tradition in every piece of my work. For that reason do not call me an avant-gardist. The avant-gardists strive to create something new, starting with themselves. A call for a certain unbroken connection is perhaps the only intellectual element in my work, and everything else comes from emotion.

hahaha (I accidentally opened the random screenshot thread on the 1st page before, and thought LEAVES had come back, now this...)
I'm a rubbish Russian, not seen any of his films (or, more shamefully, Tarkovsky's). Someone recommended me The Second Circle, so I'll probably watch that soon regardless of whether it'll come up. Are you going to open with Russian Ark or Mother and Son to let people unacquainted with him take a dip before diving?

Alright, capped off the Warmerdam month. I actually really got involved with Little Tony. Easily my favorite of the highlighted four if only for the engrossing story.

Will certainly try to keep going with this. I have only seen one Sokurov.

I will confess that at first The Sun was patience-trying. For that I might credit my relative lack of knowledge on the Japanese front of WWII. The film drew me in enough, though, and overall I think it's quite good indeed and certainly preferable to the other Sokurov I've seen (this comparison perhaps rooted in the personal interest here as opposed to that other one's difficult historical base). Without the need to display battlefield it creates a palpable sense of wartime's rattled pressure center on the verge of defeat with what appears to be reverence for Japanese culture at the end of an era against derision of America's casualness. Appeals greatly to the eye upon its few exterior ventures. Issey Ogata's performance, from what I discern, is exceptional. "Snow in winter looks like the Sakura in March. Time is indifferent and erases both of them."

It really surprised me how much more I liked it this time. I loved the way the sound and colors show his moods! It's unique. I don't know what was wrong with me the first time I saw it. I didn't even remember the plot accurately at all.

I hope others have checked this one out. It's beautiful!

As food for thought, a couple more Sokurov quotes:

“I try to look at history in the Shakespearian tradition - how a small, puny man with a thin voice had the courage to refuse the past and secure a worthwhile future for his country.”

“The picture is my legs. The soundtrack is my heart and soul.”

That last one makes me laugh, but it’s true that sound is extremely important in his films. I’ve learned to make sure the volume is turned up, and to use good headphones. This one is on the subtle side for him, but the sound is an interesting combination of crickets, thunder (or distant bombing), droning hums, classical music (sometimes two pieces at once), and radio static.

And, here's an interesting article about how the film was received in Japan.

Article makes me feel small. So knowledgable and well written. I had read about the controversy over a portrayal of the emperor (by a comedian, no less), and that the production had to be guarded from would-be protesters. Other interesting points, too - in particular the careful development of the bunker set, which, in my opinion, pays off nicely.

What with it being Soviet silent cinema month on Karagarga I've been inspired to watch films about the Bolshevik Revolution... so in turn I wonder if Taurus will be one of the Sokurovs highlighted here. If not, no matter - I'll watch it anyway :D

I re-watched this. No one does atmosphere better than Sokurov. The underground tunnels, the hovering attendants, and the distant thunder of bombs give his strange existence a stifling, claustrophobic feeling, a feeling not lifted until the very end.

At first I was annoyed by the actor who plays General MacArthur. I thought their meeting should have been a clash of personalities, but there was only one personality in the room. Then I realized that, from Hirohito’s perspective, the absence of any readable personality (and complete lack of respect) might be exactly right; that probably is how MacArthur seemed to him.

Those end credits are so beautiful. Don’t skip them. Listen!

I watched Little Tony yesterday to finish off the van Warmerdam. It's impossible for me to say which of the films I thought was best, but I like his style and sense of humour, so this was an enjoyable month overall.

I'll get started on Sokurov some time this week.

I found him a point of annoyance as well, but came to a similar (if not as deep) conclusion that that's the intention. I wouldn't say there was only one personality in the room, though, Hirohito's is just more passive - at least in that environment... and that's one of the reasons I like the cigar-lighting shot so well - the contempt in his eyes as he tries to understand this disrespectful General.

About all I've got either. I didn't "like" them but I suppose they probably helped generate a certain feeling about the bunker for that opening sequence.

I didn't explain what I meant very well! I thought Hirohito was the personality. The actor that played MacArthur seemed very weak and colorless, despite his bluster. But, again, I think it's due to the way the foreignness of his manners and attitudes would be perceived by Hirohito.

Quite a bit to talk about in this one.

Well, it certainly wasn't too engaged with the politics, but some of that is present. It's generally focussed on the Emperor's meek disposition, charting this through social interaction (servants, generals, Americans, wife), spacial interaction, and physical quirks. Now, what I read about Hirohito made him seem to be a great deal more confident, and vocal, and maybe he was even in Sokurov's film, prior to these winding down days -he is defeated. Instead this is more of a portrait than a biopic, a portrait of...death, really. At least the death of his reign. I did not know Japanese Emperors were considered deities, but that it's brought up by the film is important, considering the bits about Darwinism in contrast. e.g. The scene of him studying the crab's biological traits (which he compares to a samurai), the little bits of conversation about his being a God (which to me Hirohito subtly expresses a mocking disbelief in more than once), maybe other things...oh, the interview with the biologist (I wish this had been longer, actually). Maybe Hirohito's belief in evolutionism, his not being a deity, plays a significant part in his accepting his fate to the Allies. He is but a man, as the film's collection of quotidian pieces add up to. The modern world ends a long line of Japanese Emperors. I understand this is a common theme with Sokurov, what modernism has left behind or destroyed, correct? I'm interested in seeing his Hitler and Lenin pictures, also.

No one has yet mentioned the dream. Amazing. Unexpected! Again, the bombers are some sort of underwater creature. What is this telling us? That Hirohito's concept of the people whose fate is in his hands is abstract, distant? He's not out there amongst the warfare, so he has no vivid images of real battle seared into his mind to dream about. Of course, it's more of an apocalypse than just war. Could be more of the idea of survivial of the fittest.

What else? Bits of comedy, also unexpected.
As for the formal side, a bit unusual. Gorgeous, certainly. Is it digital? It's hard to tell with Sokurov, as his images look like photography, digital effects/animation, and drawing/painting all at once. With the little fades between scenes (even some shots) along with the digital matte-painting aesthetic, it looks most like Rohmer's The Lady and the Duke. Which was about revolution, the main character having to accept her fate also. I found some shots oddly conventional and maybe not very well thought through. I'm referring to the way conversations were filmed, I think.

Anyway, I thought this was a very absorbingly funereal film.

Well said, Trip. I concur with most all your points (I particularly like what you've said about the whole deity thing), though I actually found the dream sequence... well, if not "out of place", at least unnecessary. While as you observe the images are not distinctly WWII battlefields, I found the warfare's distance more effective.

The more I read about the history, the more I realize that the film is staking out a very sympathetic position. It’s hard to imagine him being responsible for disastrous war decisions when the film shows him only quoting poetry to his war council. Also, he was apparently forced to renounce his deity, and hedged as much as possible. But, I’d rather just talk about the film, not the history.
It's generally focussed on the Emperor's meek disposition, charting this through social interaction (servants, generals, Americans, wife), spacial interaction, and physical quirks.
Rather than meek, I’d call him sheltered. He’s plenty imperious (“get up, old man”), but he’s been raised since infancy not to dress himself or open doors. The way he chooses to speak English to MacArthur is not exactly meek. His amusing relationship with his wife is probably due more to the culture of the time, and the constraints of state duties and lack of privacy.
No one has yet mentioned the dream. Amazing. Unexpected! Again, the bombers are some sort of underwater creature. What is this telling us? That Hirohito's concept of the people whose fate is in his hands is abstract, distant? He's not out there amongst the warfare, so he has no vivid images of real battle seared into his mind to dream about. Of course, it's more of an apocalypse than just war. Could be more of the idea of survivial of the fittest.
That’s probably my favorite scene in the film! Flying fish bombers dropping fish bombs. And, it’s beautiful. So crazy. I just thought it showed his difficulty in picturing things he’s had no contact with (and, of course, his obsession with marine biology).
Anyway, I thought this was a very absorbingly funereal film.
Do you not feel the elation in him at the end? There’s plenty of sorrow, too, about the defeat (but he’s had plenty of time to resign himself to that) and the seppuku of the sound engineer. But, he’s so relieved to have “renounced his deity” that he’s giddy. I think it had been weighing on his conscience for a long time, and, he knows the gesture will pave the way for Japan’s modernization. Again, this is just in the film’s terms. The history is very different, apparently.
