Jealous thriller director Seijun Suzuki, 93, died.
Film producer Seijun suzuki, which includes pop art, black crime and especially cool mixed albums, and inspirational directors from John Woo and quentin tarantino Jim Jarmusch, have died. Suzuki, whose killing brand is widely considered a masterpiece, was fired from his studio in 1967 when he produced the absurd thriller.
Filming has become a legend in the art world, with the studio reportedly citing the “incomprehension” of “killing the brand”. To restore suzuki’s reputation, consider what he said Wednesday when he announced the director’s death:
We extend our deepest condolences and express our deep gratitude and respect for his cause. ”
The studio said suzuki died of copd earlier this week. He is 93 years old.
Suzuki, born in 1923, struggled to find a career in postwar Japan. He served in the royal navy during world war ii and survived two shipwrecks.
When he made movies in the late 1960s, suzuki lived in dozens of films, graduated from crime dramas in the style of works, integrated the elements of the central defender, and formed a striking visual style.
“Black and white,” followed by “kill,” a Tokyo nomad, a stylized thriller with sharp colors and jazz scores. Both films are due to an attempt by his studio boss to force suzuki to play down his design and narrative fever – an attempt that seems to encourage the director to dig deeper into his tactics.
BBC film critic Mark Kermode described the brand killing:
“The original idea is a fairly direct Mafia story, tells the story of the fleeing after the killing task killer, suzuki’s crazy masterpiece income makes all deformation, from narrative, visual, concept.
“The results were shocking. They fired suzuki, saying his films were meaningless and had no money. ”
One of them may make the studio director meaningless elements become one of the most popular details in the film, because it (Joe Shishido as an obvious killer) is the main characteristics of the almost superstitious way continually for fresh rice. Suzuki says the theme is simply a way to put mandatory rice cookers in movies.
American musician John zorn wrote a movie about how he happened, watched a late night television show in 1984, and discussed the brand’s killing on a talk show.
“I wasn’t ready to look at anything at all,” zorn wrote. “I remember that for the next hour or so, my mouth was on the screen most of the time. “That night changed my life and put me on the dark side of a culture known for its classical beauty.
“Every shot is a masterpiece of Japanese design,” Mr. Zorn wrote, the film and Mr. Suzuki’s praise of Tokyo’s homeless.
