Lost in Tokyo

Cassavetes fans -- if you have any doubt, set it aside. The subtitles are terrible and the title graphics are an embarrassment, but Lost in Tokyo ranks right up there with Signal 7 as a fine tribute to the films of John Cassavetes; it is very raw, real, and moving (and will probably lose a fair share of non-Cassavetes fans, so cinematic dabblers should consider themselves warned). It screens again tomorrow around 4PM. I highly recommend it -- Ikawa Kotaro, the director, the stars, and the guy who scored it are in town, too, and are funny, intelligent, and likable people...
