Product description

Akira Kurosawa (1910-1998) is one of the most critically acclaimed and influential filmmakers of all time. His films crossed all borders and genres, bridging the traditional and the modern, the old and the new, the East and the West.He became the first Japanese director widely known in the West when Rashomon won the top prize at the Venice Film Festival in 1951. Since then, his masterful techniques and innovative storytelling have influenced directors around the world for generations, including Quentin Tarantino, John Sturges, Sergio Leone, and George Lucas.This superb collection of interviews, ranging from 1952 - after his success at the Venice Film Festival - to just before his death in the mid-1990s, is a must-have for film buffs everywhere.
