Doc Fridays: Tokyo Olympiad

Although it may seem a bit anti-climatic, only my second week on the job, I am throwing out my all-time, number one favorite.

Tokyo Olympiad
Director: Kon Ichikawa

A perfect movie. Infinitely re-watchable, deliciously unexpected, impossibly hopeful.
Restores my faith not only in filmmaking, but more importantly, in humanity.

The Criterion DVD is out of print, and apparently you can’t even get it on Netflix any more. But if you can find a copy, you will laugh, cry and rejoice through all 170 minutes.
