Recommendation 推介: Tokyo Sonata 東京奏鳴曲

The Daydreamer highly recommends fellow daydreamers to catch the remaining screenings of Tokyo Sonata at Palace IFC or Broadway Cinematheque (check here). Shown in last year's HKAFF, Tokyo Sonata was one of better releases of the rather lacklustre 2008**. Kurosawa Kiyoshi 黒沢清, director of horror films such as Kairo (aka Pulse) 惹鬼回路 and Retribution 惹鬼狂叫, comes up with a family drama/shomingeki 庶民劇 with a difference, blending surreal and comedic moments with brutal strife and honesty. Don't miss this limited run!

**= I thought of putting my 2008 top ten list as my first blog post, but since I started this blog late February, it seems a bit too late to look backwards. In case you're wondering, I saw There Will Be Blood 黑金風雲, No Country For Old Men 二百萬奪命奇案, The Assasination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford 叛逆暗殺, I Just Didn't Do It 儘管如此我沒有做過 and 4 Months 3 Weeks 2 Days 4月3周2日墮胎日記 in 2007 (a pretty good year for cinema), and I haven't seen Wall-E 太空奇兵.威E. And no, the disappointing The Dark Knight 蝙蝠俠黑夜之神 wasn't the best film of 2008.
