3 Women (1977)  "The attention-seeking, loquacious Mildred #1, alias "Millie" (Shelley Duvall) struts around like a yellow canary on stage reminding me of Norma Desmond from Sunset Blvd with the same lack of self awareness."

Join me in my exploration of Japanese director Yasujirō Ozu. He made great use of ellipsis, where many events are not depicted visually, and he also used a style of cinematography in which the camera rarely moves and is usually positioned below the eye level of the actors. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yasujir%C5%8D_Ozu

Brilliant is the director that can make me sympathize with "a terrorist" but not "the terrorism." You could easily parallel this story with vulnerable youngsters recruited into gangs or religious cults in the West. Lack of economic opportunity, lack of education, and lack of fathers. Sound familiar?
