Kurosawa’s Birthday Month, Day 5

Mar 5, 2010

Congratulations to yesterday’s winners, Joe and Michael! Joe’s Hollywood-style tagline for Ikiru was:

This summer: Death is only the beginning.

And Michael’s, for Rashomon, was:

He said. She said. He said. He said.

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.

Today’s prompt:

Write a caption for the following image.

Please respond by commenting below, and we’ll choose our favorite on Monday. You must leave a valid e-mail address to be eligible for the prize (a Throne of Blood DVD).
