Day 4: Most overrated filmmaker of all time:

I can't answer this question. But if the question is "Name a very famous filmmaker whose films you have some personal problems with", I may answer Yasujiro Ozu. I have seen only 4 of his films. I admire his style or his aesthetics very much. But most of the family relationships portrayed in his films make me feel "very distant" from the film. I admire his films a lot, but I can neither say that "I personally like them" nor say that "they touch my heart". In conclusion, Yasujiro Ozu is not overrated at all. I'm sure I will completely change my mind about him after I see more of his films.
