We Cut Heads: A Spike Lee Podcast

Utamaro and His Five Women - Episode 34 - 1946

March 4, 2018

While Joel is on assignment, Spencer brings on Justin Harrison from Birth.Movies.Death (http://birthmoviesdeath.com/author/justin.harrison) to discuss Mizoguchi's forgotten gem, Utamaro and His Five Women. Their discussion covers a lot o' stuff: Sex, art, women's empowerment, classic hollywood, John Ford, George Lucas (who might be a Kurosawa fan), and many more things.
