To Err Is Human

If this wasn't coming in the middle of my Tribeca Film Festival prep I'd be telling you what I thought of Masaki Kobayashi 1959-ish epic nine-plus-hour trilogy The Human Condition today as it hits blu-ray thanks to Criterion -- I told you about this back in March when it was announced. But I've been bogged down with screeners so I haven't had the nine-plus-hours to devote to this just yet, even though I very much want to. What better way to hide from the ninety degree nightmare currently smothering New York than with a wartime drama detailing a man's methodical disillusionment? Especially when said man is played by the dreamboat Tatsuya Nakadai? I can't think of a better thing.
