Back for a second encore following the success of the first two installments, this volume takes as its subject not the genres or movements that constitute the cinema of the Land of the Rising Sun but the filmmakers themselves. Focusing entirely on directors, the contributors here offer over forty essays on key Japanese auteurs, ranging from the Golden Age to the New Wave to the present day, including of trend-setting and taboo-breaking genre specialists who have achieved a significant cult following.

Though the spotlight is on the filmmakers, this new volume continues to consider a wide range of genres associated with Japanese cinema, including animation, contemporary independent cinema, J-Horror, the New Wave, period drama, science fiction, and yakuza.

Like its predecessors, Directory of World Cinema: Japan 3 endeavors to move scholarly criticism of Japanese film out of the academy and into the hands of cinephiles the world over. This volume will be warmly welcomed by those with an interest in Japanese cinema that extends beyond its established names to equally remarkable filmmakers who have yet to receive such rigorous attention.

Notes on Contributors


"Here the focus is on notable directors who work outside mainstream Hollywood. Forty-four individuals representing a cross section of American independent cinema are considered in well-written essays by scholars and writers of film. Contributors critically analyze the body of work of filmmakers who range from those who helped define the independent label, such as John Cassavetes; to fan favorites, such as Quentin Tarantino; to lesser-known artists, such as Alice Wu. Each article is accompanied by a black-and-white photograph from one of the director's movies. Although a few names—for example, John Waters—are glaringly absent (apparently featured in previous editions), this volume is an interesting and informative read. In addition, 12 significant films from 2013–14 are highlighted, and series regulars, such as the 'Industry Spotlight' section and recommended readings, are also present. Unfortunately, the only index is a filmography that lists every film mentioned in the text, even if only in passing and not pertinent to the work's independent film theme. Despite this organizational misstep, the in-depth analysis of directors makes this work a valuable addition to film-studies reference collections. Highly recommended."
