Japanese Cinema Blogathon: 10 Classic Japanese Film Posters
This is my second contribution for Japanese Cinema Blogathon for earthquake/tsunami relief. To be perfectly honest, I’ve only seen one of these films. But these posters are just so gorgeous, they make me want to see all of these films. I wish more western movie posters were this gorgeous.
