Gate of Hell - Episode 55 - 1952/1953

December 22, 2018

J-Dawg and Spencer discuss the breakthrough Japanese film, Gate of Hell, with Colleen Wanglund! This was one of the first foreign films to win the Oscar in the Best Foreign Film category (not that Oscars matter but it opened up Japanese film to a much wider audience as a result). 2 people on this episode found this to be dull but colorful, and another was charmed by it.
