Action | Science-Fiction
Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan and the Japan Commerce Association of Washington DC
"Godzilla remains one of the most potent mythic structures of the 50s, and you get him here in full foot-stomping glory."
The roaring granddaddy of all monster movies!
Godzilla (a.k.a. Gojira) is the roaring granddaddy of all monster movies. It’s also a remarkably humane and melancholy drama, made in Japan at a time when the country was reeling from nuclear attack and H-bomb testing in the Pacific. Its rampaging radioactive beast, the poignant embodiment of an entire population’s fears, became a beloved international icon of destruction, spawning almost thirty sequels. A thrilling, tactile spectacle that continues to be a cult phenomenon.
Japanese with English subtitles | Not Rated | 96 min | 1954 | Directed by Ishiro Honda
