SHIN GODZILLA

Not your typical daikaiju film. In a way, it’s a “Gojira” reboot, but the drama is mostly human, the characters are politicians, and emphasis is on how a bureaucracy will respond to a daikaiju threat. Godzilla could be a typhoon or tsunami or any other natural disaster. Sounds awful, right? I can’t believe I liked it, but I did. I watched the whole damn thing with rapt attention. Script, acting, cinematography — all excellent. It has a message for Japan — and for Americans.
