Donald Richie, the foremost writer on Japanese cinema, has revised his excellent
"100 Years of Japanese Film". For anyone interested in Japan, I highly recommend his work.
Having lived in Japan since 1947, and having interviewed almost every major and minor artist, writer and filmmaker in Japan since then, his view is unique, and unequalled in the West.
Read an interview he gave in Metropolis here.

I apologize for the profanity displayed on this person's bike in Shinagawa Tokyo. I couldn't resist the urge to take a picture of it. I think it says it all, since the bike was damaged heavily from abuse, dented, parked illegally, and abandoned where it sits to this day. Kind of portrays a complete picture, doesn't it?
