Re: Japanese BO

Jason, that's very interesting and very heartening news. I did say I thought the death trend of Japanese cinema would be reversed, I just didn't know it had happened so quickly! Over 50% local productions is an amazing comeback.

Japan is a quirky country in some ways, but in others it's a bellweather -- it shows what could happen if other countries were wealthier and more vigorous and believed in themselves more. I think the Japanese turnaround may be the beginning of the multipolar world -- and of course India's rise as a world power is important here too. India has always had a strong and healthy cinema, producing more titles than the US.
