The film revolves around a desperate man who commits a crime in order to support his family, and the moral dilemma the policeman who tracks him down finds himself in. Japanese No spoken language. My favorite of Ozu's silents so far. I love the multi-national American, German, Japanese movie pulp world it takes place in. The opening shots are shrouded in vast darknesses and Shuji is dwarfed by fantastically large buildings, pillars, and concrete walls.

Mark Zuckerberg has built an innovative "sleep box" for his wife Priscilla Chan to help with her recent bout of sleeplessness. On Sunday, the Facebook founder shared his invention on Instagram, explaining that Chan has had "a hard time sleeping through the night" since having the couple's two young children, Maxima Chan Zuckerberg and August Chan Zuckerberg, in and respectively. The year-old explained that the wooden box is placed on his wife's nightstand, and emits a faint, glowing light at the bottom between 6am and 7am. The light is "visible enough that if she sees it she'll know it's an okay time for one of us to get the kids, but faint enough that the light won't wake her up if she's still sleeping". As the sleep box doesn't show the time, if Chan wakes up in the middle of the night and sees that there's no light being emitted, she "knows to just go back to sleep without having to worry about what time it is".
