    Default What is your favorite 黒澤明 FILM?

    Started rewatching his oeuvre complète
    I can't understand why Seven Samurai was put on Blu ray. The wigs look so bad.

    If you can't even put it in the official language of the forum, why bother to even post it?

    Sorry, I forgot to consider the source.

    It translates to Akira Kurosawa which is the film producers name. That took about 5 seconds to look up. Apparently you were pressed for time and couldn't spare 5 seconds.

    I went to the grocery store and there was a sign at the door. It said no food or drinks inside.
    ........So I went home.

    No, I'm not retired, sitting on a computer all day.

    I have things to do and not enough time to do them.

    We all thank you for taking time from your rapidly waning dullard lifetime to exhibit your moronic impotent impudence.

    Akira Kurosawa was a big deal back in film school (1974-76) SAIC.
    I've seen: Rashamon, Ikiru, Seven Samurai, Throne of Blood, The Lower Depths, Jojimbo, Red Beard, Dreams, and The Shadow Warrior.
    Ikiru was rated one of the 5 greatest films ever made.

    Must confess I knew about only two on that list. I now have a mission.
    Foreign language movies for me are a treasure trove of insights into other cultures and how we are the same and how we differ.
    The way a story teller sets out his stall carries so much that is explicit and so much is implied. You know you're not getting half of it.
