One of the celebrated treasures of the jidai-geki tradition is Kenji Mizoguchi’s Ugetsu, recently restored in a 4K digital version. Invoking an eighteenth-century Japanese ghost tale, Ugetsu recounts the story of a folk potter seduced by a phantom princess when he leaves home to sell his wares. When he returns, all is in ruin. The trio of stars — Masayuki Mori, Kinuyo Tanaka, and Machiko Kyō — plus Kazuo Miyagawa’s moody cinematography form a near-flawless work. (Kenji Mizoguchi, 1953, subtitles, 97 minutes)
