The Films of Akira Kurosawa (Paperback) Price: Rs.995

Kurosawa remains unchallenged as one of the century's greatest film directors. Through his long and distinguished career he managed, like very few others in the teeth of a huge and relentless industry, to elevate each of his films to a distinctive level of art. His Rashomon - one of the best remembered and most talked-of films in any language - was a revelation when it appeared in 1950 and did much to bring Japanese film making to the world's attention. Kurosawa's films display an extraordinary breadth and an astonishing strength, from the philosophic and sexual complexity of Rashomon to the moral dedication of Ikuru, from the naked violence of Seven Samurai to the savage comedy of Yojimbo, from the terror-filled feudalism of Throne of Blood to the piercing wit of Sanjuro. Running through all Kurosawa's work is a tough, humane, and profoundly ethical concern for the painful, beautiful, and frequently ridiculous ambiguities of human life.

About The Author

A wonderful introduction

The Japanese have been one of the most prolific creators of the cinema. But, due to the challenges of the language and their lack of marketing (as opposed to Hollywood), a large portion of us remain unaware of their gems.

Akira Kurosawa is a true legend of the cinema, and, ironically, perhaps the most "western" of Japanese directors. This book is a wonderful introduction of his movies. The book looks in detail at all of his films and also provides technical details pertaining to the movies. Recommended for lovers of cinema introducing themselves to Japanese film as well as experienced Kurosawa lovers.
