De-Agitator - An Interview with Tom Mes

This edition begins with a short introduction imploring you to see Stalker (1979) playing at The Mayfair Theatre before heading into the main topic - an interview with film critic of Japanese cinema Tom Mes. If you're interested in the wilder side of Japanese cinema Tom Mes is the man to talk to he's managed to make sense of Takashi Miike's crazy diverse ouevre after all. Mike and Josh talk with Tom Mes about a number of topics from the Battles without Honor and Humanity series (1973-1974) and it's sequel series New Battles without Honor and Humanity (1974-1976), to Sonny Chiba action vehicle Doberman Cop (1977) to Takashi Miike's short in Three... Extremes (2004). Extremely knowledgeable and loads of fun to talk to you can get more insightful analysis from Tom by checking out his commentary and literary work at Arrow Films and Amazon. And if you're in the mood for a wider array of film criticism Midnight Eye is still kicking:
