Day #21,836

Walk km 8718-8732 (13,104 to go): Watershed Park to 56th Ave at King George Blvd

green ditch
approx km 8723 Colebrook Road

Movie #1835: Pigs And Battleships (1961, Shohei Imamura)

the hotel room (before it began spinning)

Was Imamura a big fan of the Bowery Boys films? This is like the Bowery Boys on steroids. The main character is Kinta who acts like a cross between Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall. Unlike the Bowery Boys movies, I had no idea what was going on here plotwise. It was something about the yakuza taking up pig farming. Also, there was also talk about "scraps" from a U.S. navel base. Not sure what that was about.
The two must see scenes here: the spinning hotel room and the "running of the pigs".
