“Traditionally in a crime film, there are the simple archetypes that never break out of what the role is. Joe Shishido is one of those few actors that transcend the archetypal roles he’s given. In what would feel mundane and typical in the hands of an other, Shishido can make feel completely original and fresh. He almost has the quality of silent film acting with his understanding of his physical presence. In a medium filled with sharp-jawed men, Shishido re-invents the face to show something cinema’s never been shown.”
Mark Ayala, Gaijin no kinema [Read More]
