Akira Kurosawa

Post by Master Shake » Sat Dec 06, 2003 2:16 am

Last Friday Turner Classic Movies showed four classic Japanese samurai films, three of which were by director Akira Kurosawa “Seven Samurai,” “Yojimbo,” and “Throne of Blood.” I remember when I first saw “Seven Samurai” it was on late at night and the next day I had a test, but I couldn’t go to sleep until I saw then end of the film, which I think was at about 4 in the morning. Anyway does anyone else like Kurosawa’s films.

I'm a big fan. It's been awhile since I've seen any of his movies, but I think my favorite was The Hidden Fortress. I've also seen Kagemusha, The Seven Samurai, and Rashoman, of which my university just did a live production not too long ago. Kurosawa was truly a great director.

The Seven Samurai will always be my favorite from him, I have to do a director project for film class over the next to weeks and was considering using him.
The best effects are the ones you don't notice.

Taped "Seven Samurai" when it was on. What I've seen so far is pretty decent. Need to finish the rest later this weekend.
Probably too busy to be here right now.
