A good movie

3 years, 8 months ago at Jun 15 15:15
My first contact with this movie was actually rather weird. Indeed, when I was a teenager, I used to smoke weed from time to time with my buddies and one of them would put this movie on when we were at his place. Back then, I had no idea who the hell was Akira Kurosawa and I thought it was just rather surrealist flick with some psychedelic qualities. Fast-forward a few years later, back then I was... read more

Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams

3 months, 3 weeks ago at Nov 1 16:27
The thread that ties together the eight vignettes in Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams is his cinematic surrogate, often wearing his trademark hat. Like any anthology film, Dreams is only as good as any individual segment. While others sparked my engagement more, the ending results is still like that of Kurosawa making eight different arty short films and gifting us with the wide range of his imagination.... read more
View all Akira Kurosawa's Dreams reviews
Description: Produced with assistance from George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, Dreams is an omnibus of eight short stories and parables that spell enchantment at every turn. The opening story, "Sun Under the Rain," emerges from director Akira Kurosawa's personal memories, as a child (whose house is modeled after Kurosawa's childhood home in Koishikawa) witnesses a fox's wedding ceremony in a magical forest. The Garden of Eden motif continues in "The Peach Orchard," while Lucas's ILM special effects group shines in the glorious "Crows" segment, in which an art admirer finds himself living within the paintings of V ...

Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams

“The thread that ties together the eight vignettes in Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams is his cinematic surrogate, often wearing his trademark hat. Like any anthology film, Dreams is only as good as any individual segment. While others sparked my engagement more, the ending results is still like that of Kurosawa making eight different arty short films and gifting us with the wide range of his imagination.   This surrogate is often as passive witness to the actions, and only occasionally an active participant. The autobiographical and the folkloric or socio-political, sometimes all of the above, blend together in ways that are sometimes baffling but more often beautiful. “Sunshine Through the Rain” and “The Peach Orchard” display a flare for the personal as projected through a grandly t” read more

"20.9. (VHS) Olihan tässä monia mielenkiintoisia, hyviä pointteja sisältäviä ja surrealistisia unia, joiden myötä jonkinlainen ihmiselämän kiertokin nähdään. Muutama episodi toimi sitten huonommin. On tullut oltua laiska kommentoinnin suhteen ja aion olla tulevaisuudessa entistäkin laiskempi. Pari muuta kirjoitusprojektia vienevät nyt sen verran energiaa, että jostain pitää karsia. Olkoot se sitten tämä Listalin päiväkirja."

A good movie

“My first contact with this movie was actually rather weird.

Back then, I had no idea who the hell was Akira Kurosawa and I thought it was just rather surrealist flick with some psychedelic qualities. Fast-forward a few years later, back then I was just discovering how great movies could be, Kurosawa was quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite directors so it was really time to re-watch the damned thing. Back then, it seems that this time Kurosawa wanted to make something more contemplative than his usual work and it partially worked. That’s always the same problem with this kind of movies with different segments, some of them were p” read more
