^^ I've seen Yamazaki in so, so many films, he really is one of the best actors ever from Japan. :thumbsup Think the best film he's been in is this one, easily in my top 5, think the 20th re-watch is on tap then. XD

^^ I got the DVD, can't believe it's still playable. XD First major role for Yamazaki was in High and Low from 1963, trailer doesn't do him justice but he played the cool villian.

Taxing Woman, The Funeral and Tampopo is the trifecta of great Yamazaki movies directed by Itami Juzo.  He's certainly adapted well in his new character roles (i.e. Saku's grandfather in "Sekachu").

I saw "High And Low" only a couple years ago.  Interesting, gritty feel from Kurosawa; very surprised by the blunt anti-drug theme for the early 60s.

My favourites so far :
Tenshi no Koi (I didn't know Sasaki Nozomi was so good at acting), Soredemo Boku wa Yattenai (kinda heavy, but inspiring), Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo (any version).

back to  Tange Sazen: Hyakuman ryo no tsubo 丹下左膳 百万両の壺......the relationships between the characters played by Etsushi Toyokawa 豊川悦司, Emi Wakui 和久井映見, and the little boy, played by Akashi Takei  武井証, were fantastic .(in this scene, Sazen must tell the little orphan that his grandfather has died  :( )

for me, it's between Taiyou no Uta with YUI and Tsukamoto Takashi or Moon Child with Gackt, Hyde, and Wang Lee Hom <3
though of course, Kamen Rider movies hold a special place in my heart <3
particularly Kamen Rider x Kamen Ride W & Decade: Movie War 2010 <3 and Episodes Red and Yellow of the Chou Den-O Trilogy.
