A good movie

8 years 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

4 years, 7 months 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.

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 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
