Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki MurakamiCollection of twenty-four stories that generously expresses Murakami’s mastery of the form. From the surreal to the mundane, these stories exhibit his ability to transform the full range of human experience in ways that are instructive, surprising, and relentlessly entertaining. Here are animated crows, a criminal monkey, and an iceman, as well as the dreams that shape us and the things we might wish for. Whether during a chance reunion in Italy, a romantic exile in Greece, a holiday in Hawaii, or in the grip of everyday life, Murakami’s characters confront grievous loss, or sexuality, or the glow of a firefly, or the impossible distances between those who ought to be closest of all.

This fall, mainstream films are subverting expectations all over the place. And Marshall washed its hands of an expedient biopic in favor of a curious meld of legal thriller and buddy comedy. Now director Marc Forster is in the mix of slippery and difficult-to-categorize studio films, with his experimental romantic drama, All I See Is You , which has all the visual style and tension of a thriller but none of the violent payouts. I have to admire the guts of a director who portrays the dissolution of a mismatched marriage with the dread of a murder mystery.
