    As reported by Twitch here:

    Quite possibly the last of the masters of the golden era of Japanese film.... :-( RIP

    Seems like he lived a good, long life. Rest in peace, Kon. I've heard of the man and his most famous works, but I haven't seen any of them yet. I will in the future.

    I just read about it. It's sad but he had a long and very interesting life. RIP.

    I'd like to use this thread to recommend Shunji Iwai's latest work, The Kon Ichikawa Story (Ichikawa Kon Monogatari). It's a very insightful and respectful hommage to Ichikawa, whom Iwai admired very much. English subtitles are included.
