30% done with The Temple of the Golden Pavilion

Mizoguchi is pretty much a sociopath and that means he’s almost perfect to be a Buddhist monk. His total lack of empathy looks, to others, to be a placid calmness, a zen-like state of being. Even his lack of humor could be explained away by his stutter. Nothing really effects him, except the ever growing importance of the Golden Temple in his mind. Everything good is in that temple because it is not in him.
