Ikiru should be watched by everyone.
If you are a true Kurosawa fan, you'll have to watch this! http://youtu.be/cgLWrPE790Y
One of those untouchable filmmakers. One who truly embodies the meaning of the word "director" to me.
Teacher, guru, master, sensei, or whatever you call it. That's Akira Kurosawa for me.
Evidently there was once a Japanese man, who decided to make a couple of movies that he must have known would completely ruin my life, long before I was ever born.
It started with Seven Samurai. Today he's one of my favorite directors. Every film of his is incredible.
Last year I received the Kurosawa box set of 25 films. The bought his other five movies and spent the rest of the winter watching his entire filmography in chronological order. One other the best experiences of my life.
I have only watched his samurai films, I want to venture into his other work. What should I watch next Drunken Angel, I Live in Fear, Stray Dog, High and Low, or something else? Thanks.
