Toshiaki Toyoda, director of Blue Spring, 9 Souls, Hanging Garden and Pornostar. His work is on a completely different level. Pop-ish, cool, deep, impactful and wrought with emotion. Absolutely fantastic director. I’m afraid he was picked up for drug possession in Japan a while back and I haven’t heard a thing about him. Some had said this sort of thing blacklists some Japanese filmmakers. I sincerely hope that doesn’t happen to him.
