I am currently finishing up a study of Akira Kurosawa and I am hoping to move onto Yasujirō Ozu for my next project. I have never seen his films, but have read a great deal as to their compositional austerity and 'simple' narratives. I am hoping for a qualified answer as to where I should begin my viewing and why.
Relevant answer
I would start with David Bordwell's book on Ozu. This is the best guide and study on Ozu available. In particular, note the early films and how they develop his style and themes into his later films. While most people have seen and recommend Toyko Story, I would start with I Was Born But..., and the season films (Late Spring, Early Summer, Late Autumn, An Autumn Afternoon, and The End of Summer). The season films provide a great summation of Ozu's style and themes.
