Spoken language switch to Japanese would have made this a must buyNote: My rating is only for the company which mastered the movies for this particular collection. Kurosawa is beyond ratings :)

Must own for Kurosawa fansA great DVD set of 5 of his illustrious works. Anybody who love his works or want to explore his cinema should consider buying this. When I bought this, the collection had the Macbeth adaptation Throne of Blood, instead of Drunken Angel. My favorite of the lot is High and Low, yes even over Seven Samurai. Good video and sound quality. Audio is Japanese, with English subs. The DVDs have one project film each made by famous FTII alumni as bonus material.

Amazing CollectionThe first movie I've picked from box-set is 'Seven Samurai' (with a little help from Wikipedia after the director's bio). What a CLASSIC it is. Though we need a lot of patience & time, still this movie deserves a place in every movie-buffs heart. Kikuchiyo is my fav from this movie. I like his madness. Eager to watch other 4 movies.
