UNCHAINED MELODY REVIEWED
“Unchained Melody” has been my must-read material for the last month. Like most modern American fans, I have “Kill Bill” to thank for turning me on to Meiko Kaji. While that’s not as cool as saying I was watching Female Prisoner movies on VCD, it’s the truth. This is another Arrow book release that just hits readers with an onslaught of information in the least amount of pages. The index and bibliography are immense bonuses for data nerds like me.
However, most of the information is easily searchable or opinion-heavy. I guess I’m just exposed to a lot of film writing, but I wanted to find a way to introduce more fans to Meiko Kaji. But, wish in one hand and crap in the other…see which one fills up first. Pick this one up if you’re a fan of the once and future Lady Snowblood.
