4:00 at Japan Society [Program & Tix]

GODZILLA
Honda | 1954 | Japan | 96m
4:00 at Japan Society

“The dilute Amercanization isn’t terrible, but it has nothing like the apocalyptic intensity of the Honda original. The movie is funereal—but that turns out to be a good thing [...] the perfect state in which to meet one of the most bone-chilling monsters that the movies have ever belched up. The long section, nearly wordless, in which the monster destroys much of Tokyo is like nothing in any science-fiction film before or since. For pure horror, the climax actually tops what has preceded it. No masterpiece, but Godzilla has the power of a masterpiece: It’s the most emotionally authentic fake monster movie ever made.” – David Edelstein, Slate [Read More]
