Kyoko’s House

Don Draper and Yukio Mishima’s Kyoko’s House

I finished watching Season 2 of Mad Men last night and concluded that if there was ever a screen adaptation of Yukio Mishima’s Kyoko’s House, Jon Hamm could play Sugimoto Seiichro, or more practically an actor could take inspiration from Hamm’s portrayal of Don Draper.



Mishima: A Life In Four Chapters [1985, Criterion]

  1. To understand modern Japan, we must read and seek to understand Yukio Mishima.
  2. We are all complex creatures. And complex creatures require complex films full of sound, fury, colour, and beauty.
