samskivert: Something Like an Autobiography – Akira Kurosawa (3)

23 December 2001

Interesting not only for the view into the mind of one of my favorite directors, but also for the perspective of someone growing up in barely post-feudal Japan and living through WWII. The tale ends with the production and release of Rashoman, which leaves out a lot of interesting films and events from Kurosawa’s life, leaving me hoping that he produces a second volume covering the remainder of his life before it comes to an end.
