Akira Kurosawa's crowning achievement...

"Man is born crying. When he has cried enough, he dies."

To movie aficionados and cinema enthusiasts, Akira Kurosawa's name is synonymous with the title of 'cinematic god'. It's irrefutable that throughout Kurosawa's career (spanning over several decades) the director has created wonderful narratives and absolutely magnificent visual delights. To some people Kurosawa is the greatest... read more

When I asked for an option of a good Japanese movie, I was introduced to Kurosawa's movies. Worried about being bored with a b&w, I chose Ran which was shot in 1985 in color. I am glad with my choice to being introduced to his work through 'Ran'. The version I saw was on DVD and the movie had gone through better color treatment and there was additional suppliments to the DVD which includes

25 From 85: My Favorite Films Of 1985 (25 movies items)

" Before movies like Crouching Tiger/ Hidden Dragon & Hero came along & added the artistically flair fantasy elements to these types of epic movies, there was Ran. Featuring some of the most beautiful & grand visuals ever in an Akira Kurosawa film. The fact that his name was associated with this project guaranteed this film's sweeping quality. And, the added high budget seemed to compromise his vision not in the slightest. Instead, it seemed to open up the potentiality that Mr. Kurosawa had holdi"

Movie Reviews (part 14) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Excellent epic war movie inspired by one of the literal greats - King Lear by Shakespeare and directed by one cinema legend, Akira Kurosawa makes this film a necessary watch for any cinefile out there. One of the most evil female foxes portrayed on film that just spits venom and is death to know. Excellent production values with fantastic costume design, sets and an actual castle being built and burnt for this film. Memorable images are all over the film. The Downs: Since it is a tra"
