Japanese director Koreyoshi Kurahara's films are better known by reputation, since they're rarely seen or screened anymore. Considered the leader at the forefront of what was considred in the 1960's as the Japanese "New Wave" film movement which was inspired by the French New Wave films of Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Goddard, the opportunity to see any of his films have been hard to come by.

However, to correct this slight, Criterion released a 5-DVD set of Kurahara's most important films from the period, this week, on their specialty Eclipse label: The Warped World of Koreyoshi Kurahara , which includes his 1964 film Black Sun, which is an oddball buddy picture about a a jazz obsessed your Japanese slacker and a Black GI on the run.
