Supercontext: Takeshi Kitano’s Dolls

Thank you to our Co-producer patron Chris Marlton for selecting this week’s topic!

This 2002 Japanese art film is slow, meticulously shot, and has wonderful, ornate costumes. We discuss how it was influenced by a form of traditional puppetry but should be approached more like a meditative painting.
