The Tragedy of Lady Wakasa - Ugetsu


Lady Wakasa (Machiko Kyo, Kyō Machiko, 京 マチ子) is a tragic figure. What some see as a demon trying to seduce Genjuro (Masauki Mori, 森 雅之) I see as a soul's last attempt at salvation through love. I was lucky enough to find the song I wanted in the style I wanted. The result is a masterpiece, born of two masterpieces. It really edited itself. It's time like this I believe in the muses. And if I were to die right now, my life's work would be complete. That's how much I love this and the movie Ugetsu. Machiko Kyo is both beautiful and hauntingly memorizing. Her performance makes this movie one of my favorites.
