The Cinema of Japan Trailer for your Weekend: Shield of Straw


Of all the directors featured this week, Takashi Miike is one who is still working relatively prolifically. So I thought it might be good to feature his upcoming (or recently released depending on where you live) film as this week’s trailer.

Shield of Straw (or Straw Shield depending on who you ask) looks like some pretty violent and stylish Miike fare focusing on the cop genre. Unfortunately I could not find a trailer with English subtitles, but just from the visuals, this looks like one that I wouldn’t mind catching. What do you guys think?

This week thanks to Madman Entertainment, you have the chance to win a copy of Ace Attorney, Black Belt plus one other Japanese film on DVD. Head here for all the details on how to enter.

  1. Hmm, interesting.. I watched Warm Bodies today, it was not anywhere near as bad as i thought it would be, as apposed to Anna Karenina which was quite awful..

    1. Thanks for commenting. I have heard pretty positive things about Warm Bodies. Interesting you did not like Anna Karenina. I still haven’t seen it.

      1. Anna.. It was a strange melange of theatre and film which I felt did not work at all well. Warm bodies was a good film with a fairly lame ending as per US USual, but worth the effort I think
