The Midnight Eye Guide reviewed at Senses of Cinema

Senses of Cinema reviews The Midnight Eye Guide to New Japanese Cinema: "Mes and Sharp paint a convincing story of the fall-and-rise of the 'new' Japanese cinema, of a daring and visionary generation emerging from the fog of commercialisation and the global gentrification of the imaginary, most notably the collapse of the Japanese film industry in the late 1970s. While more academic accounts of this period have tended to conflate the trajectories of the directors with the mechanics of the industry, here the directors are given individual focus and a rich picture of their roots emerges."
