Have you seen I Was Born, But... ? Right now I'm debating whether or not to get that Silent Ozu Eclipse set, mostly for I Was Born, But..., which I haven't seen.
Is it on the same level as The Only Son, or perhaps better?
Actually, I haven't seen any Ozu films. At the time of that post, Criterion had just released two-movie box set and I was interested in it based on the reviews I had read. I hoped I'd buy it as my introductory movies into his works. But I decided instead to continue with 1940s Powell & Pressburger before I move on to another director, so he's taken a backseat until after I acquire Contraband
, One of Our Aircraft is Missing
, and The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
as that'd complete 1940s P&P. Then I'd move on to Ozu (hopefully by July and the next 50% off sale) and pick up the two-film set as well as the two Eclipse sets before moving on to some of the singular titles Criterion's released, like Tokyo Story
and Late Spring
