David Liban is a gifted filmmaker
11 April 2014 | by johncbaileyactorSee all my reviews

There is nothing about Miyagi that I do not find outstanding and captivating. Seamless and courageous. I cannot remember the last time I laughed and cried for the most unexpected reasons during a film I will remember for a very long time. I am saving any further review for a second viewing. David Liban deserves to have this film seen the world over. Looking for Mr. Miyagi is an unexpected gem. I would recommend anyone see this film. The cinematography could have been pedestrian. Mr. Liban could have settled. He did not, and neither did his cast and crew. One of the more intriguing films I never expected to be much more than a gimmick, this film is so full of heart that I am left without my usual aptitude for in depth criticism other than to say "David Liban, please continue to create, to innovate, and above all to surprise us with your next venture."
