Good episode? Give it some love!
Another foreign film this week with Big Man Japan, or Dai Nippojin (2007) starring Hitoshi Matsumoto. It's a mockumentary style film following Japan's biggest hero, literally, the 100 foot tall Big Man Japan. We see the havoc the job plays on his life between fights with giant monsters, or Kaiju, that threaten Japan. It's a necessary job, but the public doesn't support their defender like they did in his Grandpa's day. Underpaid, underfunded, low television ratings and a monster that he can't beat are just the beginning of our hero's problems. Wyndham takes us through the film's highlights, giving us the good, and the bad, of a film that is equal parts comedy, and action with a surprisingly emotional core. Join him on another international trip with Big Man Japan.
