The Fantastic Cinema of Ishiro Honda

Godzilla (1954)

I recently read Peter H. Brothers’ informative new book Mushroom Clouds and Mushroom Men: The Fantastic Cinema of Ishiro Honda and really enjoyed it. It’s the first English language book written about the Japanese director Ishiro Honda and it’s a must-read for fans of Japanese science fiction and fantasy films. I love giant monster movies so I decided to review the book for the Movie Morlocks this week.
