What is Hollywood, you ask, dear children? A quorum of whores babbling endlessly on about fucking while the bordello is razed for a penny arcade -- Paul Bern

Shimizu's movie, Two Masseurs and the Woman

Beautiful. Like Ford.
Simple emotions, affect spaces.
Erice's acordes -- often expressed in bursts of mise en scene.
Plot relegated, off-screen, to letters or clumsy dialog.

Brilliant use of ellipses -- scenes ending in the "wrong" place
Profound mono no aware feeling.

A forgotten genre -- the holiday picture.
