Akira Kurosawa has made 4 of my 20 favorite movies of all time, The Seven Samurai (1954), Ran, Based on Shaeksapear's King Lear story (1984), Rashomon (the way of Samurai) 1950, which inspired Jim Jarmush's 1999 Ghost Dog, The Way of the Samurai. And finally my most favorite as they say : Dreams, Yume 1990. I think that if you can see any of Kurosawa's movies, you're probably in for a treat. Kurosawa is a great writer and director, and his name on a film really means something. But this one is special—just watched it again recently and I was no less impressed than the first time I saw it.
