Podcast: Akira Kurosawa Movie Series
As is the case with several other Movie Series we’ve done, Kurosawa is a blindspot (more so for JD than Brendan) for us that we needed to remedy. Noted as one of the most important and influential filmmakers of all-time, Kurosawa has 30 films to his name, many of them considered masterpieces by the majority of critics and audiences. For this series, we are going to do our best to cover as many of them as possible and dive right into how these films changed the landscape of cinema. Follow along and we hope you enjoy this series as much as we do.
