The Long Excuse (Blu-ray) (English Subtitled) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Nishikawa Miwa (Director)
| Fujita Kenshin
| Fukatsu Eri
Writer-director Nishikawa Miwa (Dear Doctor) adapts her own Naoki Prize-nominated novel Nagai Iiwake for the silver screen in The Long Excuse. True to the director's style, the critically praised drama patiently unfolds a quiet, quirky and piercing story of a man slowly realizing his own nature. The Long Excuse stars Motoki Masahiro (Departures) as an affected writer and 40th Japan Academy Prize Best Supporting Actor nominee Takehara Pistol as a plain-spoken driver, two very different husbands who cope with their wives' deaths in different ways.
Famous novelist Kinugasa Sachio (Motoki Masahiro) treats his wife (Fukatsu Eri) dismissively and is carrying on an affair on the side. While he's meeting with his lover (Kuroki Haru), his wife passes away suddenly in a bus accident. Sachio is rather unmoved by her death, but he vainly puts on a show of grief for the camera. At a meeting of the bereaved, he runs into old classmate Yoichi (Takehara Pistol) whose wife passed away in the same accident. Unlike Sachio, Yoichi is a distressed mess over the loss of his wife, and struggling to take care of their two children on his own. Sachio impulsively offers to babysit while Yoichi, a long-haul truck driver, is away for work. In the curious process, he becomes increasingly attached to Yoichi's family and their roles in each other's lives.
Rage (2016) (Blu-ray) (Deluxe Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Tsumabuki Satoshi
| Lee Sang Il (Director)
| Ayano Go
Following 2010's Villain, director Lee Sang Il once again adapts a best-selling Yoshida Shuichi novel for the silver screen with the critically acclaimed human suspense drama Rage. Garnering 12 nominations at the 40th Japan Academy Prize, the film features the all-star cast of Watanabe Ken (Unforgiven), Miyazaki Aoi (The Great Passage), Tsumabuki Satoshi (Villain), Moriyama Mirai (Human Trust), Matsuyama Kenichi (Death Note), Ayano Go (The Light Shines Only There) and Hirose Suzu (Our Little Sister). Similar to Villain, Rage (a.k.a. Ikari) delves into the subject of human nature, illustrating the way trust and suspicion shape relationships.
Rage begins with the murder of a married couple in Tokyo's Hachioji district. Puzzlingly, the killer leaves the word "rage" scrawled in blood at the scene of the crime. A year later, three mysterious men emerge as persons of interest in the case, and one of them may be the suspected killer who has undergone plastic surgery.
In Chiba, Maki Yohei (Watanabe Ken) finds himself distrusting his flighty daughter Aiko's (Miyazaki Aoi) new boyfriend Tetsuya (Matsuyama Kenichi), who recently moved to town. In Tokyo, gay ad agency employee Fujita Yuma (Tsumabuki Satoshi) harbors suspicions about his new lover Onishi Naoto (Ayano Go), a drifter he recently took into his home. And in Okinawa, a high school girl (Hirose Suzu) befriends a lone backpacker (Moriyama Mirai), who is camping out on a deserted outlying island.
This edition comes with a 40-page booklet and two bonus discs of special features including making-of documentary, event footage and visual commentary.
Godzilla Resurgence (4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray) (4-Disc Special Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Anno Hideaki (Director)
| Takenouchi Yutaka
| Ishihara Satomi
Japan's original kaiju monster returns in Godzilla Resurgence! Written by Neon Genesis Evangelion creator Anno Hideaki and co-directed by Anno and special effects veteran Higuchi Shinji (Attack on Titan), the blockbuster film features the largest Godzilla in history that undergoes several stages of evolution onscreen. In reference to the kaiju's film origins, Godzilla Resurgence (a.k.a. Shin Godzilla) takes inspiration from Japan's recent disasters and pressing environmental and geopolitical problems faced by the world today. More than just a thrilling monster movie, the film is also a bitingly wry political satire on government bureaucracy and crisis management. Featuring a sprawling cast with many cameos, Godzilla Resurgence stars Hasegawa Hiroki (Attack on Titan) and Takenouchi Yutaka (Oba: The Last Samurai) as Japanese government operatives, as well as Ishihara Satomi (Attack on Titan) as an American envoy.
On a day like any other, a coast guard boat is suddenly attacked and the bridge over Tokyo Bay collapses. Viral and news videos show an unidentified creature in the bay. The Prime Minister (Osugi Ren) calls in legions of cabinet and military officials, bureaucrats and experts to assess the threat. Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Yaguchi's (Hasegawa Hiroki) sounds the warning but no conclusion can be reached. Instead, the government seeks to defuse the situation by assuring the public that the aquatic creature poses no danger to those on land. However, the giant creature soon makes landfall, wreaking massive destruction as it ploughs through the city, and then returns to sea, all while the unprepared government scrambles for a belated response. Yaguchi is placed in charge of a task force to research the mysterious monster dubbed Godzilla, and evidence indicates that it will keep growing more powerful and destructive. When Godzilla returns, all of Japan could fall.
This edition comes with the film on standard and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, as well as two bonus discs containing promotional videos, making-of, outtakes, CG making and other special features.
