Kon Ichikawa has just passed away. (Above image from Ten Dark Women, which was basically a hyperbolic version of Brecht's life story.)

Ichikawa was really second to none. Fires on the Plain, Burmese Harp, Ten Dark Women...all amazing amazing films. I am memorializing him by playing "Porno 3003" by Pizzicato Five, featuring Kyoko Kishida (star of Ten Dark Women) talking about the film.
