Episode 18: Twenty-Four Eyes

Prepare to wipe those tears!  This episode has us looking at a golden classic of post-war (1954 was the film’s year of release, to be exact) Japanese cinema, Keisuke Kinoshita’s Twenty-Four Eyes.  Is the film still deserving the honor of having beat its peers, including Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, for several prestigious film awards or is it just a product of its time?  Find out as we look more closely at one of the most beloved films in Japanese history.

Also included in this episode is a quirky letter from an old friend of the show, the beginnings of our new B-Boy theme song, and the usual film-related talk and tomfoolery.
