It is as welcome -- even if mainly to track and movie buffs -- as the finish line is to a marathon runner.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Ichikawa's 1965 documentary of the 1964 Tokyo Olympics is a document not just of an event but also of a time and place and a culture.

Tokyo Olympiad is a stunning testament - both to the Olympic athletes it focuses on, and the craft of artistic documentary filmmaking.

'Despite the unnecessary preaching of peace and brotherhood, Ichikawa truly captures a far more intimate portion of Olympic spirit than recorded anywhere else'

The torch-bearer running across the screen, as Mount Fuji fills the background, stands as one of the most profoundly moving shots in cinematic history.

Though it's visually choppy, with some disruptive zooms, the 'Scope format matches the subject's scale, and Ichikawa's emphasis on shared human experience is compelling.

By plunging us into the action, Ichikawa creates a unique intimacy between athlete and audience. Even after countless hours of watching televised sports, the effect is revelatory.

An epic study of athletes struggling, against their own bodies and each other, to excel. But it reaches even further, as a stirring portrait of fleeting human hopes.
