Welcome back to our continued look at Japanese filmmaker Sabu. It’s been a wild, quirky, runny, drivy journey so far but things take a dark turn in Dead Run from 2005. Click image or link below to access the show!
The wildman and acclaimed maker of chase movies with some very surreal and absurd humour continues his more thoughtful and humanistic streak as firmly explored in the dark Dead Run covered last episode and for this one, Kenny B and VCinema’s Coffin Jon will review Kanikosen. Featuring Sabu depicting a mutiny aboard a crab fishing ship, it’s a story that goes back decades and has a streak of real life darkness attached to it as well.

This is part 2 of our series on director Sabu after covering his first two movies Dangan Runner and Postman Blues in episode 18 of Japan On Fire. His characters ran and rode on bikes amidst droll, quirky and absurd humour as well as drama in the first two and not a lot changes as we look at Monday from 2000. Does Sabu still evolve though?

We are starting a new series on a particular figure out of Japanese cinema. I don’t know of many so I pick the ones I know and years ago I was recommended checking out the work of Sabu. I responded well, put down the fandom but now that there is a podcast series on Japanese cinema I’m involved in, it’s a good op to pick up where I left off/revisit what I liked in the first place. That is to setup that for a couple of episodes we’ll be talking of director Sabu and for this episode his first two movies: Dangan Runner from 1996 and Postman Blues from 1997. With me Kenny B and VCinema‘s Coffin Jon. Click image or link below to access the show.
