Godzilla Minus One




Post war Japan is at its lowest point when a new crisis emerges in the form of a giant monster, baptized in the horrific power of the atomic bomb. From director Takashi Yamazaki. Presented in Japanese with English subtitles

Curator's note: Set in the ruins of 1946 Tokyo, the newest Godzilla is immensely satisfying. After the disappointing American Godzillas and Anno's quirky post-3.11 version, Godzilla Minus One presents us with old-school Godzilla carnage and pleasures. The politics are as garbled as ever, the story is peppered with charming cringe moments, and the special effects are the best ever.
