Japan Cuts Roundup: A Story of Dreams for Helter Skelter

Unlike the New York Asian Film Festival, Japan Cuts is relatively quiet during the week. There are never more than two films in a day, and oftentimes there's only one. On the weekends, though, they make up for it with three or four screenin...
