Through close readings of the most significant films of Gosho Heinosuke and descriptions of their historical, social, and industrial contexts, Arthur Nolletti illuminates the work of this important director. The careful attention Gosho gave to even the smallest gestures and nuances of character and emotion is matched by the breadth of Nolletti’s research and the depth of his understanding. His analysis illustrates the important influence of Gosho’s unique style and sensibility on cinematic form in Japan and beyond.
