Congratulations to yesterday’s winner, Jason Venzor! Jason wrote:
I wish that I could say I was most like Kyūzō—the consummate swordsman and samurai whose last action would be to cast away the arms he held so closely during life, but the real answer for me is Katsushirō.
Like Katsushirō, I am in awe of Kyūzō, but I can only aspire to be like him. In the meantime I’d fall in love with a farm girl that is dressed like a boy.
March is Akira Kurosawa month at Criterion. On the twenty-third, the great Japanese filmmaker would have been one hundred years old. For this centennial celebration, we will be posting trivia questions and other contests all month, and giving away a different prize every weekday.
Write a Hollywood-style tagline for your favorite Kurosawa movie.
Please respond by commenting below, and we’ll choose our favorite tomorrow. You must leave a valid e-mail address to be eligible for the prize (a Rashomon poster).
