We Cut Heads: A Spike Lee Podcast

Black River - 1957 - Episode 52

November 11, 2018

John Cribbs of the Pink Smoke stops by to discuss the breakout film for both Tatsuya Nakadai and Masaki Kobayashi...Black River! The story of corruption in post war Japan, it does not shy away from all the ugly and uncomfortable aspects of that time Japanese history. There is a lot of talk of Imamura, which makes sense given that this is what led to Pigs and Battleships (1961).
