Drama

Rod Lott
Gilbert Toma had an original, envelope-pushing idea for his film school thesis project: Document the final days of someone who has decided to end his or her life, including the actual act of suicide. One Craigslist ad seeking such a subject later, 142 tapes were shot, and the end result is A Necessary Death.

Recognizing grief


Letters to the Editor

Joanette Clipson
October is Depression Awareness Month — a time to recognize a condition that affects nearly 10 percent of the population, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each year, an estimated eight to 10 million people experience the loss of a loved one. In addition to death, people experience the loss of a job, a child leaving home, or other major life changes such as a divorce.

Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai

Seppuku never has been so beautiful.


Drama

Rod Lott
Vanguard director Takashi Miike is not one to repeat himself, and in Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai, he hasn't — not really. Yes, the film is the Japanese filmmaker's follow-up to 2010's 13 Assassins; yes, both are remakes and focused on samurais. But they approach the genre from such varying ways that other than excellence, the similarities end there.
