I thought this box of war-time movies would be more… er… distinct? But it’s like the main requirement of the censors is that the movies should be as boring as inhumanely possible.
I mean, some of this may not be from gummint requirements, but just from crushing filming conditions — many of these scenes just seem really drawn out and padded — just as if they couldn’t really do anything but shoot on the studio lot with a diminished crew.
This is just too tedious.
Ah, it’s a movie basically nobody has seen.
I’m out after 28 minutes.
Jubilation Street. Keisuke Kinoshita. 1944.
