A Connection to Letters From Iwo Jima
So, I went to see Clint Eastwood's Letters from Iwo Jima last night. I loved it. It's a pretty damn great war film telling a story about a side of WWII I hadn't seen before.
One of the leads, Tsuyoshi Ihara, who plays Baron Nishi, is friends with my cousin in Japan! I had dinner with him about 2 years ago. He was impressed that I knew him, but alas it was because I was a nerd. I placed him in one of the Gamera films.
