Today I’m coming back to a short story by Borges, untitled « Tlon Uqbar Orbis Tertius », that I already mentioned in a previous video. This text contains a multitude of ideas, including a passage written like a magic trick !
1964 was the most productive year for the Zatoichi movies, with four productions in the same year ! « Zatoichi and the Chest of Gold » is the sixth film of the series, and there is a comeback of the brother of the main actor Shintaro Katsu, Tomisaburo Wakayama.
Here is how to test your stories, and how I might have inspired one of the greatest American contemporary writers !
Released in 1963, « Zatoichi on the Road » is the 5th movie of the series. It was directed by Kimiyoshi Yasuda, to whom we owe a total of six movies about Zatoichi !
The world of Tlön created by Borges reveals itself to be a gold mine of magical ideas, and we will discuss two of them here.
