Movie Info

Akira Kurosawa was arguably the most important Japanese filmmaker who ever lived; he was certainly among the most revered and most influential. His award-winning feature Rashomon was one of the first major international successes in Japanese filmmaking, convincing many western cineastes for the first time that Japan had a national cinema worth investigating, and his subsequent body of work -- including Ikiru, The Seven Samurai, The Hidden Fortress, Throne of Blood, Yojimbo, and Ran -- is emotionally rich and esthetically compelling in a way few filmmakers can match. Kurosawa is a documentary which explores the personal and professional lives of this giant of world cinema, including interviews with his friends, family, contemporaries, actors, fellow filmmakers, and noted cinema historians -- and in archival clips, Kurosawa himself.

  • Adam Low's documentary isn't the smooth flowing professional film you'd expect about such a consummate artist, but anyone who appreciates Kurosawa will find plenty to enjoy

  • A collection of mildly interesting vignettes about legendary filmmaker Akira Kurosawa that lacks cohesion in a way the master's films never did.
