There's this massive Akira Kurosawa box set coming our way; it might not be for everybody, but it sure is something else. I look at Criterion's "25 Films By Akira Kurosawa" over at The Auteurs' today, here. The patron of all film/DVD critics, Dave Kehr, weighed in on the set in yesterday's Times.
Above, Toshiro Mifune failing to thrive in '57's Throne of Blood. A late-night fave for young cinephiles on WOR Channel 9 back in the day.
