Quotes

Narrator: Until his death in 1998, Kurosawa directed over thirty films, including 'Rashômon', 'Seven Samurai', 'Throne of Blood' and 'Ran'. His work was a huge influence of directors like George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, who revered him as a master of the cinema. He was criticised in Japan for appealing to an International audience, yet he did more than anything else to reveal Japanese society to the West.

Fantastic look into a fantastic director's life.
21 February 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

This is basically a 2 hour retelling of the life's work of Akira Kurosawa. Who I think has had a bigger impact on cinema than anybody else I have ever seen. This is not only insightful into his life, but a little bit of advertising, mainly because I wanted to see movies like Dodeska-Dan (which bombed on first release).

I really enjoyed this one. Especially when talking about the bad things that happened in his life. You really do feel sorry for the guy when hearing about some of the stuff that happened. Stuff like the earthquake in the 1920's (which made me want to watch Kagemusha when it referred back to the quake).

If you have the slightest interest in Kurosawa then please watch this documentary. You will not have your time wasted.
