Squancho my man...As much as I love you, and want to have your babies for including "Ran" which is a lush film....I think Apocalypse Now and Zulu should be in the top ten. Al though having said that, your ten does rock my SOCKS!

Indeed. Has Akira Kurosawa EVER made a bad film?

Which reminds me, I have to go and buy Seven Samurai on DVD tomorrow ^_^

And Tora Tora Tora

And Rashomon

I think Akira is taking revenge from the grave, His tempting films are making me broke :(

I'd also like to give an honorable mention to Band of Brothers. This would have been close to the top of my list but it was a mini-series and not a movie.

Hah hah Squanch...I tell ya, it's gettign harder and harder to resist buying ALL the Japanese films in the fantastic HMV World Cinema section.

I tell ya though mate, I can't find Seven Samurai ANYWHERE for under 18 quid so if you can, enlighten me!

The cheapest I can find for is seventeen (2 disc special) and the mrs is politely telling me to wait til it's cheaper...But it'll be ages til it's cheaper...

Still, Zatoichi will be out in July which will make me tres happy!

Kagemusha is £6...So buying that.

Oh and Akira apparantly remade Macbeth into a film called "Throne Of Blood" which is required.

And on the vaguer subject of films I read in Empire about this amazing Spanish film about some guy who sets out to find the luckiest people (fictional) but putting them through tests such as tying their hands together behind their backs, blindfolding them and making them run through a forest. Those who get to the end without smashing into trees he keeps to help find out about luck. Sounds very amusing.
