    I stumbled across this title, "The Demon" (aka Kichiku), a little Nippon gem by Yoshitaro Nomura from the last century that deals -- in a melodramatic way -- w/ what the author of the Gaurdian article below refers to as "the last cinematic taboo", chide abuse. Not sure I agree w/ that proposition that it is the last taboo, but either way the film is serious business. In the film, there is an interesting shifting protagonist / antagonist situation that is quite unexpected. I thought folks might be interested to see it, esp. Whitney.

    Also noteworthy, the foley used for the slapping sounds are incredible. Like the sounds used in martial arts films of the day.

    Hi ladies and gentlemen. Good news/bad news. We finally heard back from a producer who wants a xmas script tomorrow so i'm going to just give The Imaginator a last read, touch up, etc. and tweaks with my partner. Bad news is I'm going to stay home tonight. I read Whitney's script -- I have notes I'll send along by end of week. Sorry Whitney!
