Action, Anarchy and Audacity: A Seijun Suzuki Retrospective

The strange and striking films of the Japanese outlaw auteur are celebrated with screening of a dozen of his titles, from 1965's Story of a Prostitute to 2005's whimsical Princess Raccoon, his most recent (and likely final) feature. Speaking of closing the book on his career, last year saw the publication of Time and Place Are Nonsense: The Films of Seijun Suzuki, the first comprehensive study in English of an eccentric filmmaker who remains a cult figure outside of Japan despite his deep influence on directors such as Jim Jarmusch, Baz Luhrmann and Quentin Tarantino.
