Kurosawa’s Birthday Month, Day 16

Mar 23, 2010

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, and giving away a different prize every weekday. To see yesterday’s winner, check out the update on yesterday’s post.

Today’s prompt:

In one sentence, convince a friend who is unfamiliar with Kurosawa to watch one of his films.

Please respond by commenting below, and we’ll choose our favorite tomorrow. You must reside in the U.S. or Canada and leave a valid e-mail address to be eligible for the prize (a DVD box set of AK 100: 25 Films by Akira Kurosawa).
