Akira Kurosawa

Lowest Rated: 56% The Sea Watches (2002)

Birthday: Mar 23, 1910

Birthplace: Tokyo, Japan

Akira Kurosawa is unquestionably the best known Japanese filmmaker in the West. This can perhaps be best explained by the fact that he is not so much a Japanese or a Western filmmaker, but that he is a "modern" filmmaker. Like postwar Japan itself, he combines the ancient traditions with a distinctly modern, Western twist.
