Ugetsu

Ugetsu ★★★★½

It’s often that you hear Ozu’s name pop up when speaking of visual composition, and how not to move the camera, but I think Mizoguchi is Japan’s real master when it comes to mise-en-scène. Only other director that comes to mind with this simple yet effortless and consistent capability of simple effective style of framing is John Ford.
