Ugetsu

Ugetsu ★★★★½

Kenji Mizoguchi's Ugetsu is a surreal tragedy of beautifully crafted storytelling and excellent performances. 

This film hit me. It hit me like a semi-truck. 

The cinematography is absolutely fantastic. The fog in the lake is just amazing. 

It's so realistic and superbly done beyond belief. 

Mizoguchi really loves making movies about families being broken apart. 

I've only seen two films from him: this and Sansho The Bailiff. I definitely need to see more, he is an excellent director.
