Wow. I've only heard of one of those (guess which one  :D ). Are these all Japanese movies? (judging by the title, the first two certainly appear to be)

Yes, they are all Japanese movies (except "Flags of Our Fathers" of course) that tell you how inhuman war is. I wish they were shown all over the world over and over until war is extinct from this planet.

Alright, I just put Under the Flag of the Rising Sun in my netflix queue, it's fifth after The Office, Le Cercle Rouge, Tokyo Story and Bring me the Head of Alfredo Garcia!  :D

Good choice! It's an excellent film, I can guarantee you. But I must warn you also, it's very graphic (violent). This will be your first Fukasaku film.

I've been meaning to get myself educated in Japanese films other than Kurosawa's. I was sitting around one day when I realized that I don't think I've seen a single Japanese film that wasn't a Kurosawa one. Frightening. So I'm going to be checking out some Ozu. Any other directors you would strongly recommend?

There are so many I can recommend. Kenji Mizoguchi, Masaki Kobayashi, Kaneto Shindo, Yasuzo Masumura, Mikio Naruse, Shohei Imamura, Kon Ichikawa, Keisuke Kinoshita, Shuji Terayama, Nagisa Oshima, Kiju Yoshida, Kinji Fukasaku, Yoji Yamada, Yojiro Takita, Toshio Matsumoto to name a few. They are all great and significant directors in the history of Japanese cinema.

Suijen Suzuki is pretty damn cool, and pretty significant.

He certainly has a unique position in Japanese cinema, but I'm not sure if I can call him significant within the context of Japanese film history.

I think you can. He was very deep into the avant garde scene and broke many traditions in film making. Not to mention his huge influence on pop culture, or counter-culture.

Starship Troopers I think best shows what going through a war can be like without coming off heavy handed and preachy. Too bad the film is often tossed aside as camp.

I like war films that show the psychological effects warfare has on the human mind.

Yea, pretty much what Starship Troopers is, combining that with heavy satire on media, and probing fascism.

What did you think of it?

He was influential in a certain way. But you have to understand he was using the pop culture in his work not the other way around. I like some of his works, but if you consider influence on a thematic and social level not just a form of expression, I think it's debatable if he has been a significant  director in the history of Japanese films.

Oh I hate the media.  >:(

I didn't see Starship Troopers. What's it about?
