One of the world’s greatest movies, “Sansho the Bailiff” (1954), screens Sunday at the Harvard Film Archive as part of its ongoing Kenji Mizoguchi retrospective.

That might be a good choice for your favorite Japanese film. But then there are the works of Akira Kurosawa, Yasujirô Ozu, Mikio Naruse, Hayao Miyazaki and Ishirô Honda, the guy who directed the original “Godzilla” (1954). It’s a challenge to pick just one, but send your choices to petervkeough@gmail.com or include them in the comments. Deadline is Monday, May 26. We’ll be presenting the best Sunday, June 1. [Shown is a trailer for “Sansho the Bailiff” (1954)]
