Acquarello, got any recommendations in this section other than Woman of the Mist? Obviously I'm going to new Yamada film, I've seen the Mizoguchi and the Ozu. The Naruse and the Kinoshita I'll probably go to only because I recognize the names.

Hey phyrephx, I plan on catching as many of the Hiroshi Shimizu films as I can, then as many of the Gosho films (and Naruse and Kinoshita of course). There was a Shimizu retrospective at HKIFF last year and it never came to NYFF (unlike the Ozu the year before). This year was Kinoshita, so it looks as though they lumped both retrospectives into an overall "Shochiku tribute" program.
