Viewing Notes

RIP Nobuhiko Obayashi
January 9, 1938 - April 10, 2020

Sadly we lost Obayashi sensei yesterday. Wanted to celebrate his life and contribution to weird cinema so I popped this in, which I’m always game to watch bc it’s so damn entertaining and totally bananas. We really lost a true auteur. Hoping to check out more of his films this year (still very happy that DKUTV programmed a couple of his classroom films earlier this year).
