There's a brand new print of Ozu's masterful Tokyo Story at Pacific Cinematheque later this month. It is one of only forty films to have appeared on all four iterations of the Arts & Faith 100 list of "Spiritually Significant" motion pictures. Paul Schrader devotes considerable attention to the Japanese director in his book "Transcendental Style In Film: Ozu, Bresson, Dreyer," and many consider Tokyo Story to be Ozu's finest work. My first introduction to the film was Roger Ebert's piece in his book "The Great Movies," and my first viewing was at the Cinematheque.
