This is great news. Been wanting to see 'Anatahan' for ages.

Actually, come to think of it, that goes for 'Make Way For Tomorrow' as well. The Dave Kehr piece is really wonderful, too.


Finally! We had a bad copy of the film at our store, and I'd urge people to see it even while warning them it was a bad copy (MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW, that is). The Criterion print of it is terrific, and I like the interviews with Bogdanovich and Gary Giddins (though I can't quite get behind the latter's defense of MY SON JOHN).

This really is one of the most heartbreaking films ever made, because everybody is portrayed in the film as having their reasons.

How's this for a misreading--I always saw the title as "The Saga of Akhnaten," thinking: story of Egyptian pharaoh filmed in Japan? what the?

Now that would be a "degree of stylization" that Dave Kehr felt would be impossible to imagine ;-}
