Richard Mott's charge of "ecological piracy" leveled against Japan (Commentary, Feb.12)proves that there are few topics as emotionally charged and factually distorted as whaling. When the U.S. was the world's premiere whaling nation, not too many years ago, it arguably played a larger role in the depletion of great whale species than any other country before or since. A call to ban whaling might signal atonement for this past, but it wrongly assumes that Japan engages in the same sort of thoughtless exploitation.

The Times' Aug. 16 editorial, "Japan's Apology: Late and Too Little," seriously misrepresents several key points. Marking 50 years since the end of the war, Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama's Aug. 15 statement is, in fact, only the most recent of numerous apologies issued by the government of Japan. For instance, in 1993, Prime Minister Morihiro Hosokawa explicitly, and more than once, expressed the government's " . . . profound remorse and apologies for the fact that past Japanese actions, including aggression and colonial rule, caused unbearable suffering and sorrow . . . " In his recent statement, Prime Minister Murayama echoes these long-held official sentiments.

The Scene: Tuesday's American premiere of the Japanese film "The Mystery of Rampo" at the Directors Guild. That the erotic fantasy/mystery was last year's highest grossing live-action film in Japan (where movie tickets cost $22) gave the opening added zing. The Buzz: To many American viewers, the film was beautiful, but inscrutable. To one guest, it was "like Sherlock Holmes meets Barton Fink." To another: "David Lynch meets Luis Bunuel on acid."
