Late Autumn (1960)

Spotted this timeless looking leather jacket and black rimmed glasses dude. ^

Empty rooms, uninhabited landscapes, objects (rocks, trees, tea kettles), textures (shadows on shoji, the grain of tatami, rain dripping), play a large part in Ozu’s world, and the extreme simplicity of this view is matched by a like simplicity of construction once the film has begun.
— Donald Richie

I watched some of Ozu's movies before I started blogging and forgot about them until recently. Great vintage Japanese eye candy. These movies are really long, slow paced, and detail oriented, which is why I posted that quote above, but it makes it really easy to take screen caps.

The clothes and scenes posted here are DIVINE. That purple and tan color blocked dress literally took my breath away. I don't know how I have not heard of this director or his movies until today!
