This raccoon dog is what Blaine Harden is talking about—“supersized testicles” at that. In the New York Times.
I blame it all on Bill Clinton.
Actually, Mr. Harden got the chronology backwards. Godzilla was a post-WW II creation, drawing on Ray Harryhausen and the fears and memories of the nuclear holocaust. If anything, it was Hayao Miyazaki’s work that brought the two Japanese narratives together in the movie theater, most prominently in Princess Mononoke.
I’m back. Will try to post. Later.
