Roger Ebert watched Shibata Go's LATE BLOOMER and likes it. Crazy.
"You watch for a while and the movie is tough going. Then it takes hold and you begin identifying with Sumida. He is a bad, bad man. You can sort of understand that."
Oodles of previous Late Bloomer posts.
Midnighteye review and Shibata Go interview. The first ones in English, btw.
