Kwaidan by Masaki Kobayashi( Visual )

3 editions published in 2015 in Japanese and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After more than a decade of sober political dramas and social-minded periodpieces, the great Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi shifted gears dramatically for this rapturously stylized quartet of ghost stories. Featuring colorfully surreal sets and luminous cinematography, these haunting tales of demonic comeuppance and spiritual trials, adapted from writer Lafcadio Hearn's collections of Japanese folklore, are existentially frightening and meticulously crafted. In The black hair, a poor young samurai leaves his first wife to marry a rich woman. When he is unhappy in his second marriage, he returns to his first wife, who at first appears unchanged from when he last saw her. In The woman of the snow, a woodcutter is spared by a mysterious ghost-like woman in the snow, but must promise never to tell anyone what he has seen. In Hoichi, the earless, a blind musician-monk named Hoichi is commanded by a gathering of ghosts to sing the saga of their ancient deeds. The head monk paints Hoichi's body with prayer verses to protect him, but unfortunately overlooks Hoichi's ears. In In a cup of tea, a writer wonders what would happen to a person who drinks another's soul and finds out

Toru Takemitsu by Charlotte Zwerin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in Japanese and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tōru Takemitsu (1930-1996), well-known Japanese composer, wrote the scores for some of the most celebrated, seminal works of Japan's New Wave movement, and collaborated with Akira Kurosawa, Nagisa Oshima, Masahiro Shinoda, and Hiroshi Teshigahara--some very obsessive directors. Takemitsu emphasized the sound, images, and textures of natural living things, as he scored power struggles, paranoia, fractured family relations, and the two big subjects that often dominate the films his work accompanies: murder and suicide. Takemitsu's scores feature Japanese instruments and musical concepts, but he also used musician's performance techniques, engineering tweaks, and sometimes specific sound effects, which were performed, recorded, and edited into sharp musical statements for Japanese films that addressed issues heretofore rarely depicted in Japanese cinema. Interviews with Takemitsu, Teshigahara, Shinoda, Kobayashi and Oshima are illustrated with copious clips from their films
