My aunt is on life support and they say she’s brain dead. My aunt killed herself and I don’t know how to deal with it. I don’t get it, I don’t understand why this happened. I wish I was asleep and this was a dream but it’s not and I can’t stop crying and I don’t know what to do
“Evil’s just destructive? Then storms are evil, if it’s that simple. And we have fire, and there there’s hail. Underwriters lump it all under ‘Acts of God.” ― Thomas Harris, The Silence of the Lambs
This scene shocked the hell out of me when I saw it for the first time.
Akira Kurosawa: We had a tube running from underground up Nakadai’s leg to over his heart with fake blood flowing in it. When the compressor’s stopper was released, the fake blood shot out of Nakadai’s chest. [Script supervisor Teruyo] Nogami got covered with it. The residents of Gotenba who were watching thought that Nakadai had actually been stabbed. I’d explained earlier about the shoot, but when I said, “Cut!” one guy was waving his arms in shock. His face was white from shock and that scared me. I thought everyone knew what to expect.
Tatsuya Nakadai: I remember it clearly. [Teruyo Nogami was] counting down for us, and when [she] reached 25, we were supposed to draw our swords. As soon as I drew my sword and Mifune cut me down, I felt this impact in my chest. I wasn’t expecting it to be that strong. I was told it’d feel like a pat from a girl. I felt a thud, and everything turned red… The force nearly knocked me over, but that would have ruined the take, so I hung in there, grasping my sword… Then I fell like I was supposed to, and Mifune finished his part, and then Kurosawa called out, “Cut!” He said, “We got it in one take!” And I thought, “What do you mean, ‘we’?” [Laughter]
Amazing commentary. One of my favorite moments in cinema EVER.
