People invest in all sorts of things: Some people may buy a doll with no intention of ever re-selling it, but for every doll purchase I make, I consider it an investment. In the next week, I want to explore several topics specifically related to dolls and finance.
Art is something that lies between the skin and the flesh [hiniku], between the make-believe [uso] and the real [jitsu] … Art is make-believe and not make-believe; it is real and not real; entertainment lies between the two.
We see then the intimate relationship between love and death, the former being enveloped by the veil of the latter.
At the heart of love, death is never far away. When was it — that morning of the first snow when the early customers were arriving and you walked back with me, still in your nightclothes, through the thin snow by the great gate?
The snow today is no different, but our hopes have entirely changed. You poor dear — it was because of me that you were first made to suffer, step by step the white cloth was dyed deeper, from blue to indigo.
The cinema of Takeshi Kitano happens somewhere between formality and improvisation, elegy and absurdity, distance and familiarity. If continuities exist in his films, they rarely do so in stable, reliable forms: Editing is a game, a puzzle to be solved once the film has revealed itself and not before: A restless, impulsive imagination presides over the entire production process: The film itself is comprised of three loosely interwoven Chikamatsu variations: However, such comparisons should be approached with caution.
While the acting styles associated with the Kabuki theatre are various, they do conform to generic types. This is particularly true of the female impersonators onnagata who — to paraphrase Barthes — do not so much copy femininity as signify it and who virtually constitute a theatre-within-a-theatre.
The chanter was a direct precursor of the speaker benshi who was employed throughout the silent period to narrate and comment on the plots of films as they were being screened.
This may be true but it also likely that he was drawn to Bunraku because its world of puppets and puppeteers accords in a fundamental way with his own deterministic outlook and belief in the ineluctable nature of fate. The Bunraku performance is comprised of four principal dramaturgical elements: Bunraku puppets are manipulated by an intricate system of rods, internal cords, and springs.
Given its increasing popularity and the demands for greater technical novelty, the art of the Bunraku puppeteer became more specialized and difficult to master. Indeed, the principal operators omozukai — like the highly skilled chanters — are often celebrated figures in Japanese popular culture, and unlike their two assistants, they enjoy the privilege of not having their face veiled by black silk, although like the other puppeteers they normally wear the traditional black cotton robe kuroko.
The second assistant ashizakai operates the feet of the male puppets; the long, lavish kimonos worn by female puppets mean that any manipulation of their feet is normally unnecessary.
Paradoxically, the presence of the puppeteers seems to emphasize, rather than diminish, the emotional expressiveness of the puppets.
The black costumes and carefully choreographed movements of the puppeteers combine to frame the puppets, enclosing them within the confines of their own fictionality, insulating them from the intrusion of extra-theatrical spaces and objects: The little puppets are more ornamental than realistic and — like their operators — their gestures never compromise the sanctity of the Bunraku text.
As Barthes puts it: Given its relative isolation from western artistic influences and the tradition of formal superimposition and textual appropriation within Asian performing arts generally, early Japanese cinema was receptive to various stylistic and structural features associated of the Kabuki and Bunraku theatres.
Inevitably, there was a modern reaction to this tendency and by the mids Japanese cinema appeared to be rapidly out-growing its dependency on the antiquated codes and conventions of popular theatre. However, as is often the case, the break with the theatricalities of earlier cinematic styles was by no means absolute.The Disney+ Streaming Service Is Every Disney Mom’s Dream Come True It's the ultimate destination for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and more!
