I watched this documentary on DVD and found it very interesting, despite not being particularly well-edited, with a lot of candid interviews and music videos. The music of the time was dominated by classical and operatic themes and, at the same time, by heavily rock 'n' roll songs. The documentary doesn't go into detail as to which genre (if any) is responsible for which type of music. Rather, the viewer is given a general description and, as with any good documentary, is left with more questions than answers. I can't help but feel that the producer and director of this movie, Raymond Li, must have been influenced by Eric Clapton and the early rock & roll generation, which was less interested in classical music and more interested in music by the likes of Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Who and The Who-and so they chose rock & roll songs that expressed a bit of emotion and melancholy. This is all very well and good, but the thing is, if the viewer is already aware that rock & roll is not particularly classical, then this documentary will be a disappointment, since the documentary does not have enough information to allow for an intelligent and artistic analysis. I think this documentary could have been much better if it had been put together by someone who had studied these subjects, as the interviews and music videos were only an introduction, and did not show anything that would be a suitable reference for further research. However, since the producers were not very well-versed in rock & roll, they put out a series of interviews with bands and people who knew the people in the bands, who were also interested in rock & roll and what it represented. I don't know if the interviews were in the same vein as this movie, but if they were, then I think they were a mistake, since they introduced too many people that could have been more qualified to talk about the music and, more importantly, the people. I hope that, in the future, this movie will be put together in a much better format, because this documentary is a very good one, and should be studied by people interested in rock & roll and classical music.

Director Ryuichi Sakamoto's documentary Coda examines the plight of an American jazz guitarist and his family during the turbulent 1960s. The theme is both personal and historical, and the film is incredibly informative, informative in fact. The film is accompanied by interviews with many of the people involved in the event. The musician Ryuichi Sakamoto (a pseudonym) and his wife, Nina (a pseudonym), his wife's mother (a pseudonym), and his father-in-law, Dr. Teruhiko Fukuhara, are all interviewed and discuss the tragedy that the war brought to their country. Sakamoto and Nina discuss the misfortunes of the war, including their lost son. Sakamoto was killed in a small plane crash while in the air. His wife and son survived the crash, but they lost their parents. Nina, the husband, was struck down by a kamikaze (an airplane bombing, on the ground, of Japan) that took him with it. Sakamoto's wife was also hit by a kamikaze, but survived. Sakamoto's son died in the war. The rest of the film is primarily about Sakamoto's life, his wife Nina, and his son, who was born after the war. There are many interviews with people who had to leave their homes because of the war, as well as those who stayed, or emigrated, as Sakamoto did. Many of these people describe the things that were done to the Japanese people by the Americans, but there are also many people who say that Sakamoto, and other Japanese people, are actually the most sympathetic. The film is very powerful. I highly recommend it.

In most recent films, an actor is often given the task of transcending his role by transforming himself into someone else. One of the most commonly applied techniques is the use of foreign actors (usually famous Japanese) to play foreign-sounding roles (for example, Fonzie being played by an American). A famous example of this technique is the American actor Jesse McCartney as the alien. However, in "Coda", Shinichi Sakamoto is seen playing a Japanese character called Ryuichi Sakamoto, and this allows us to see what he could really do if given a choice to play either Ryuichi Sakamoto or an alien. In his own words, "I can say that I have played all the roles in the world. For example, I have played Ryuichi Sakamoto in 'My Father's Revenge', 'The Phantom of KAOS' and 'The Emperor's New Clothes'. I am really not sure which I will choose. If I choose an alien, I would choose an alien. If I choose an alien, I will choose an alien. However, I could not choose an alien. I could not choose an alien." This film would not be possible without the support of director Sakamoto himself. However, it is not only Sakamoto who has been asked to transcend his role. The supporting cast of this film has done a remarkable job as well. For example, the footage of the Anzan temple in Kyoto was the work of one of the temple's senior priests. This filming is also a work by Sakamoto himself. He was probably quite frustrated with the results. "Anzan" is a simple story about a man who is captured and taken to an island where he is enslaved. Sakamoto did not even know that he was being enslaved until he arrived on the island. There he was informed that he was being used as a slave. The story is told in a very naturalistic way. Many scenes are not necessarily about the slave-trading themselves but rather about the way that the person is treated. A good example of this is a scene in which an Asian man gets beaten by a Japanese man. The character himself is not beaten, but rather the physical punishment is inflicted upon him. This scene was also filmed by Sakamoto himself. One of the most striking aspects of this film is the way that the images and sounds are changed from the original Japanese to the original English. The film is not only about the degradation of slaves in Japan, but also about the beauty of Japan itself. Sakamoto's own home, which is one of the scenes used in the film, is from the same era as the Japanese people. This film is by no means a masterpiece, but it is still a very important documentary.

I have seen many Japanese music videos. These all contain the same plot: a guy is in a video shop and someone offers him a small scale version of the "Mexican Woman" dance. He decides to try and beat it. He learns his moves very quickly. The video store owner becomes interested in the "Mexican Woman" video and he decides to put the video on the store. After this, the video store owner hires Ryuichi Sakamoto to "study" Ryuichi Sakamoto's moves. After this, Ryuichi Sakamoto learns that he is now "The Mexican Woman" and "Coda" has to watch the video to find out what's going on. Ryuichi Sakamoto performs the moves very well. He is very passionate about this, and he hopes that he will be the first person to beat the "Mexican Woman" video. Unfortunately, "The Mexican Woman" video is not as popular as Ryuichi Sakamoto wanted. "Coda" and his friends tries to convince Ryuichi Sakamoto to do the video, but Ryuichi Sakamoto is unwilling to do the video, which causes the video store owner to feel very insecure about the video. After the video store owner gets a lot of attention from people, and the video store is moved to a new location, the video store owner tries to convince Ryuichi Sakamoto to "fix" the video, to make it popular. Ryuichi Sakamoto's friends have to convince him to do the video, because he thinks it is a good idea. In the end, Ryuichi Sakamoto and his friends convince Ryuichi Sakamoto to do the video, but he doesn't do the video, because he feels like he is a loser and he doesn't know what to do, he is a loser and he doesn't know what to do.
