It's hard for me to believe there's not serious demand for involved discussion of Japanese films. There are a couple of groups on facebook but they're going nowhere too. A Japan history board occasionally gets a Kurosawa thread going, big whup, and even that doesn't last long. Used to be a fairly active usenet group but nobody bothers with usenet anymore, except spammers and flamers. I know this board has been censored a couple of times and chased free speech people away, but it's still been, in passing spurts and phases, a pretty good place for commentaries. Is there livelier discussion somewhere I don't know about? Or is there really no very great need? I just watched "Executive Koala" hoping it would be funny and cool like "Calimari Wrestler" but no -- it stank, stank, stank.
