A celebration of an artist’s life in the purest sense, Ryuichi Sakamoto | Opus is the definitive swan song of one of the world’s greatest musicians. When Ryuichi Sakamoto died in March 2023 at age 71, the world lost one of its greatest musicians: a classical orchestral composer, a techno-pop artist, and a piano soloist who elevated every genre he worked in and inspired and influenced music-lovers across the globe. As a final gift to his legions of fans, filmmaker Neo Sora (Sakamoto’s son) has constructed a gorgeous elegy starring Sakamoto himself in one of his final performances. Recorded in late 2022 at NHK Studio in Tokyo, this filmed concert is an intimate, melancholy, and achingly beautiful one-man show, featuring just Sakamoto and a Yamaha grand, as the composer glides through a playlist of his most haunting, delicate melodies (including Lack of Love, The Wuthering Heights, and Opus), and selections from his catalog of magnificent film scores (including The Revenant, The Sheltering Sky, and his Oscar-winning score for 1987’s The Last Emperor, which made him the first Japanese composer to win an Academy Award).  Shot in pristine black-and-white, this stirring film brings us so close to a living, breathing artist that it feels like pure grace. (Dir. by Neo Sora, Japan in Japanese with English subtitles, 102 mins., Not Rated)
