    Director’s Chair: Satoshi Kon

    Once again, it’s time to round up posts on Director’s Chair. Now before I put them in I will say that I didn’t expect to get a lot of responses this time around. I’m glad that I was able to get some responses for this feature but I know that with Satoshi Kon and the last director I chose, Derek Jarman, I may have gone a bit too obscure with my choices. Let me say then that for the next few months, the directors that I...

    Deadline: 28th May 2016

    I said back in the post I did announcing the return of this feature that I would be highlighting more obscure and offbeat directors during my tenure running this feature and I feel that no director exemplifies this more than Derek Jarman. Starting off as a set designer, most notably working on Ken Russell’s The Devils,...

    So my first run on Director’s Chair has finished. Despite not getting as many reviews as I would like, I still think this has been a success, considering that this hasn’t been a feature for the past 3 years. I hope that this is a good starting point for future directors I’ll highlight. So without further ado, here are the reviews for Kenneth Branagh’s films that I received.…
