Maybe it's a Christmas mafia film.
There are a lot of those... (Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, Santa Clause, etc...)

"Plotwise" his films are all very simple. It's usually about a daughter getting married or other family issues. They are rarely, if ever, step-by-step storylines, all his films are essentially social studies, looking in on families and their place in society. How is his lack of "stories" any different than say Rohmer, which I believe you are quite fond of? Granted his films tend to focus primarily on one character or a smaller group, but the similarities are many. So as you don't need a "story" in the case of Rohmer, why were you looking for it, and why were you lost when you couldn't find one?

Identification, maybe. For a feminist, the japanese woman could be disconcerting. - Just guessing.

Isn't that a good thing though?

"Identification, maybe."

I've never needed to identify with the characters to enjoy or "get" a film. Though one should certainly be able to show empathy for the Japanese situation, particularly with someone like Ozu who's always critizing and bringing up the debate on how destructive this social system/determinism is.

Talk about resurrecting a dead thread.

Just realized tonight I've logged over 2,000,000 minutes or something like 3.8 years.

How can you all know this that easily? do you all have a spreadsheet with runtimes?

I have my own blog/database, it took me less then a minute to find out. I guess for others here spreadsheets will be the more obvious answer :)
Maybe it's data you could export from ICM, Letterboxd or IMDb too, if you've logged all your votes on one of these sites?

If you have a paid Letterboxd account, the all-time stats page lists your amount of hours watched.

355,560 minutes watched since July 2007.

yes, I went back and added runtimes some years ago and include it on every line entered since

By exporting IMDb ratings and adding up the runtime (including errors, unknown runtimes, inconsistent runtimes on mini-series, etc...):
863679 minutes

Unfortunately, the way IMDb lists runtimes for series of various types, it's prone to understate if one watches much series TV (which I do and I check/rate when I complete the series). It's one of the reasons I decided to add runtimes to my spreadsheet: I do my best to calculate total runtime for the series when entering it into my watched spreadsheet.

joachimt: I'm suspicious your number is much higher.

Yeah, I have that added up in my spreadsheet. I didn't even have to calculate it - I wrote the formula years ago. :lol:

I've rated episodes as well, so I might even be counting things double.

0.5 - 105.1737
1.0 - 105.9431
1.5 - 102.6801
2.0 - 100.2181
2.5 - 100.5980
3.0 - 101.0587
3.5 - 101.8338
4.0 - 104.2641
4.5 - 102.5993
5.0 - 96.7381

My ratings and average runtime per rating. I had expected it to be a bit more obvious (I generally feel like I prefer shorter films), though it does show in my absolute favorites I guess.
