Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams
"...Directed by: Akira Kurosawa. Starring: Martin Scorsese, Chishu Ryu, Mieko Harada, Mitsuko..."

July 15, 1999 Movie Review by Marjorie Baumgarten

Ran
Kurosawa uses Shakespeare's King Lear as a template, but in Ran Lear's three scheming daughters are sons, and the action is transposed to a mythic, dreamlike, feudal Japan. Like an adrenalized fever dream of ultimate power gone awry, Ran reveals Kurosawa's grasp of visual splendor at its most powerful.
"...Directed by: Akira Kurosawa. Starring: Tatsuya Nakadai, Akira Terao, Jinpachi Nezu, Daisuke..."

(Re)learning Japanese
One was a hardworking Renaissance man, a student of literature. The other was a hard-living military veteran, a cameraman-in-training who stumbled into acting after his grizzled mug and gruff mien won a talent search. Together, Akira Kurosawa and Toshiro Mifune created some of the Japanese cinema's most enduring treasures.

Feb. 2, 2007 Screens Review

Kagemusha
All of the director's classic themes and techniques are here, but 'Kagemusha' also ushered in a new period in Kurosawa's style, one influenced by the countless hours, months, and years he spent painting imagined scenes from the movie as he waited dejectedly for funding to come in

The Bad Sleep Well
Sandwiched between career peaks, Kurosawa serves corporate sacrifice – suicide by seventh-story window, truck, and volcano – rather than feudal slicing and dicing
