Film about Hirohito gets played in New York

If you're in the New York area and are a fan of foreign films, or all things Japanese, listen up! The Sun, a movie about Emperor Hirohito at the end of World War II, is going to be opening on November 18. This is thanks to Film Forum, which is presenting The Sun's American theatrical premiere. It's from filmmaker Alexander Sokurov and stars Issey Ogata as the emperor.

While this isn't a big release, it's getting attention.  The New York Times had some nice things to say about it: "As a portrait of pathology -- that of Japan and of Hirohito both -- it's terrific."

The film's scheduled to play daily until December 1, so that's not a very big window of time. If this is one you want to see, better get to it!
