Paul Schrader and Alan Poul on Mishima

Paul Schrader and Alan Poul discuss the trials and tribulations in the making of Mishima: A life in four chapters. For copyright reasons, one is not contemporaneously privy to what Paul and Alan are viewing (much like Herzog’s commentary tracks). As a curtain-raiser one should listen to Benjamin Noggle’s Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters — Criterion Retrospective. Much like Benjamin I think the reissue is a worthwhile investment if only to get the parallel visuals that Schrader and Poul are discussing, and even though The Strange Case of Yukio Mishima is available online.
