Kino is releasing Suzuki Seijun's Taisho Trilogy on March 7 of this year, and it looks amazing. Seijun made these three supernatural art films -- KAGERO-ZA, YUMEJI and ZIGEUNERWEISENIN -- in the 1980's as independent productions and they returned him to public acclaim. I've never seen them but from what I've heard they are absolutely stunning.

WOMAN IS THE FUTURE OF MAN is getting a release in New York sometime in February, but New Yorker films hasn't announced the date yet.

Also, only in New York, is Film Comments Selects from February 15 - 28, featuring Stanley Kwan's EVERLASTING REGRET, SHANGHAI DREAMS, Shinji Aoyama's Tadanobu Asano noise rock apocalypse film, ELI ELI LEMA SABACHTANI, BASHING, Shinya Tsukamoto's HAZE, Apichatpong Weerasethakul's short WORLDY DESIRES, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's LOFT, Lu Chuan's KEKEXILI, and Vimukthi Jayasundara's THE FORSAKEN LAND.

Tartan is releasing SYMPATHY FOR LADY VENGEANCE (retitled LADY VENGEANCE) on May 5.

Jun Awazu's totally, 100% computer generated kaiju eiga, NEGADON, has been picked up by Central Park Media for distribution in the Spring and a video release in the summer. You can see just how good it looks in these trailers.
