I hope to all that is right that you have seen Ran.
I have remedied this. Wow. Just wow. Probably one of the best.
I also saw Yojimbo again last weekend.
Glad you liked it. You should really see all his later work.
Mifune and Kurosawa are the Japanese Herzog and Kinsky.
If you want to go on a lark and get into film theory or criticism, you should see how Kurosawa gets dumped on.
Kirosawa/Mifune - Herzog/Kinsky. Wow. Never thought of it like that. Kinda makes me want to watch Aquirre - Der Zorn Gottes again.
I was sorta making fun of myself and hoping someone would mock me for my supposed whatever you call liking German stuff, since I guess Herzog and Kinsky are the German Kurosawa and Mifune.
Actually the older I get, the more cumbersome everything Teutonic seems.
Vamrat, what film people (actors, directors, screenwriters) have you tried to sit and watch in a sorta systematic manner? It might be a sport fit only for those who get paid to do so or people under the age of 30, but I think it can be very illuminating.
Really anymore, I find the prospect of sitting through a film sorta uninteresting.
BTW, I am going to have relatively limited "free" time on the internet for a while, so don't expect any grand Hegelian insight soon.
