Here we are with the next episode of The Eclipse Viewer, the podcast dedicated to the Criterion Collection’s Eclipse Series of DVDs.

I actually was not able to join in this episode, things coming up, as they do, at the last moment. But David is joined by Scott Nye to discuss the first two films in Eclipse Series 13: Kenji Mizoguchi’s Fallen Women: Osaka Elegy (1936) and Sisters of the Gion (1936 also).

Please find the podcast, the shownotes, and plenty of links over at CriterionCast here.


In the next episode of The Eclipse Viewer (which I’ll be on, and which we are recording tonight), we will be discussing the remaining two films in this Eclipse Series: Women of the Night (1948) and Street of Shame (1956).
