This episode, we’re closing out our series reviewing every Akira Kurosawa movie ever! It’s been a long journey and I can say with absolute certainty that Kurosawa will always be one of my favorite directors who will have always directed some of my favorite movies. I have two movie posters sitting next to me as I write this; the first is one of Mondo’s Back to the Future posters by George Bletsis, and the second is Secret Movie Club’s Ikiru by Olivia Sy. If you are in the Los Angeles area, and like movies, I highly suggest seeking out their 35 mm showings. They’re incredible.
Anyway, finishing Kurosawa’s filmography chronologically, Chris (@gokuffy), Chris (@antoniuspius), and I talk about Madadayo. Then, finishing Kurosawa’s films by filling in a 1949 blank, Chris and I talk about The Quiet Duel. And finally, Basil (@itsbasiltime) joins me to talk about Ahiru no Sora.
