A pop culture icon, a metaphor for nuclear weapons, and one of the biggest (and perpetually revived) film franchises in history, Godzilla was unleashed on Japanese audiences, and eventually the world, for the first time in this sci-fi classic. In celebration of its 60th anniversary, we’re presenting the full-length original Japanese film with all of the dark humor and antinuclear messages missing from the American version. (95 mins., DCP)
