I can't afford to hate people...

Ikiru (1952)

Akira Kurosawa, Dir.


One of Kurosawa’s peaks in his art. Disturbing, honest, remarkable.

such an amazing movie, but you know how i feel about many a kurosawa film.

now, have you seen either of kon ichikawa's wwii films?

The Burmese Harp is a powerful work. I really like Ichikawa' approach to story in that film. I do like Fires on the Plain, as well, but Harp is my preference.
