Behind the Scenes Stills Vol. 2

December 6, 2009

Save the best for the last? Actually, I included my favourite stills in the first post, so this is the left overs. Enjoy.

In the first picture load we’ll take a look at behind the scenes of Nikkatsu pink films. While often a pain to sit through, these films have given the start for many famous directors’ careers, including as Shinji Somai (Taifu Club), Yojiro Takita (Departures), Shusuke Kaneko (Death Note), Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Tokyo Sonata), Ryuichi Hiroki (It’s Only Talk), Hideo Nakata (Ring), Yoshimitsu Morita (The Family Game), Akihiko Shiota (Gaichu) and Masayuki Suo (Shall We Dance).
