This paper traces the history of the Japanese film industry beginning with its early success and subsequent failure in the face of competition from American films.

The paper also looks at more recent films produced by Japan's film industry that have received accolades and financial success in the Japanese and Western markets.

From the Paper:

"Although Japan is the world's second biggest movie market, analysts in film and business claim that the country's film industry is dying or dead. In the early 1960s, nearly two-thirds of the films that were popular in Japan were made in that country, while today the same percentage of films that are showing in Japan are made overseas. [1] Critics claim that the industry is not commercial enough to appeal to a broader range of viewers outside of Japan. Critics also claim that television and video games have ruined the Japanese love for their cinema, whose history is more than a century old."
