This week’s Kanopy Film Club selection is Ugetsu, “one of the greatest of all films,” according to Roger Ebert, a tale of “two brothers, one consumed by greed, the other by envy. In a time when the land is savaged by marauding armies, they risk their families and their lives to pursue their obsessions.” Director Kenji Mizoguchi’s ghost-story drama has been credited with popularizing Japanese films in the west and hailed as a masterpiece of Japanese cinema.
