After some flame from their compilation of 135 Shots That Will Restore Your Faith in Cinema [1], Flavorwire is back with a new compilation~~~ this time around focusing on faces, their emotions and their beauty… to relative success. I don’t think I could fault them… I had enough with Wong Kar Wai (included multiple times), multiple Zhang Yimou shots (and a double appearance of Gong Li to boot!), there was Park Chan Wook, Guillermo del Toro, Leslie Cheung’s face.

It was a thing of beauty.

The only face I could possibly suggest would have been Greta Garbo’s last shot on Queen Christina, but I’m content.

I haven’t actively looked for Yu Aoi fan-made videos in a long time, but here we go~ I hope this one doesn’t get deleted, coz we’ve been suffering from that a lot lately. Regular Yu Aoi film footage applies, with nice additions of Tamatama, and Otouto… though, Raiou would have been nice to have.

I’m on my way to watch Tokyo Monogatari as I type this, and I was surprised by this upload on my YouTube timeline. Opening on January 19 (note on the Yu Aoi event calendar below), Yoji Yamada has finally release a meatier look to his version of Ozu’s critically-lauded film. It’s nothing much (visually), and there’s so much crying… and Yu’s going to cry — it seems — a lot. I wanna watch it. I wonder if I watch the Ozu version, if I would need less subtitles to understand Tokyo Kazoku when it’s out. xD

You gotta think of these things nowadays~

The language seems fairly simple. xD Let’s try. Here you go:

Yu Aoi for Zipang Punk

goemon rock 3 zipang punk

I ran into this story~ though I can’t be exactly sure about it, you know… with my Japanese sucking and all. But it seems like Yu-chan’s going to be on another play- called Zipang Punk Goemon ROKKU III (so it seems like it might be… a musical? LOL) A rock musical on the life of legend hero Goemon or something.

You can check the story on Geinou News Lounge, which is the source with the most text. Plus photos. I will be adding the show’s dates on the Yu Aoi calendar placed down down below, which had seemed rather empty lately.

If anyone else has more information on it, don’t be shy and share it in the comments :)
