Watch This First: Yasujiro Ozu's Pillow Shots

by Jason Toon

This is what I wish poetry felt like. It's a collection of brilliantly composed "pillow shots" - quiet, enigmatic, non-narrative interludes - from the films of master Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu. Dangerous Minds has more about the technique and the director.


Watch Watch This First first, every weekday morning. Because the best way to start the day is to start it a few minutes later.
