      Akira Kurosawa

      Akira Kurosawa

      Highest Rated: 100% The Bad Sleep Well (1960)

      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.
