Regular JT film critics Mark Schilling, Kaori Shoji and Giovanni Fazio got together at the Uplink theater/restaurant in Shibuya to talk about each other’s No. 1 films for 2013: “Cloud Atlas” (Fazio), “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” (Shoji) and “Kaguya-hime no Monogatari (The Tale of Princess Kaguya)” (Schilling). The discussion was heated, but no crockery was thrown.

M.S.: “Cloud Atlas” really divided the critics, but I got caught up in it. I thought, though, if you don’t believe the philosophical/religious stuff in the film — we’re all connected, etc — it might seem like a big pile of tosh. (Laughs.)

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
