To those who guessed, yes the four images I put up over the weekend are indeed from Godard's great Une Femme Mariée, but, although there's a brand-new disc of the film from Eureka!/Masters of Cinema, that's not the subject of this week's Foreign Region DVD Report. (It will be the subject of next week's. Naturally.) This week, I hold forth on another MOC disc, of Masahiro Shinoda's 1971 Silence, based on the novel by Shushaku Endo. If those names are ringing a bell for you, they should: Endo's novel is soon to be adapted by Martin Scorsese. It's a little vexing—but alas, when you think about it, not entirely surprising—that Shinoda's superb film warrants no mention in many of the reports on the Scorsese project, so look at this piece as a little attempt to redress the injustice.
