Watch Trailer

Director: Ishirô Honda
Starring: Takashi Shimura, Akihiko Hirata, Akira Takarada


Godzilla (a.k.a. Gojira) is the roaring granddaddy of all monster movies. It’s also a remarkably humane and melancholy drama, made in Japan at a time when the country was reeling from nuclear attack and H-bomb testing in the Pacific. Its rampaging radioactive beast, the embodiment of an entire population’s fears, became a beloved international icon of destruction, spawning almost thirty sequels.

More than straight monster-movie fare, Gojira offers potent, sobering postwar commentary.
