 Love Letter : review by Shelly Kraicer
This is a triumphant first feature for Shunji Iwai, the most delightful film that I saw at the 1995 Toronto Film Festival.
There is a dazzling amount of rapid-fire cutting, though not of the look-at-me MTV style; the editing just authoritatively, and gracefully, expresses the attenuated-dreamy mood of the whole piece.

A: I should be happy if that happened, although my film of Richard III was intended to stand as a piece of genuine cinema, independent of the play.
In his writing about his film, he specifies how he wanted everyone in the audience, male and female, to be seduced by his performance the way the characters are by Richard's wiles - and I don't think he meant in a general sense that he merely wanted everyone to love his performance.
