In an epilogue provided for this study of Akira Kurosawa (1910-1998), Donald Richie reflects on Kurosawa’s life work of thirty feature films and describes his last, unfinished project, a film set in the Edo period to be called ‘The ocean was watching’. Kurosawa remains unchallenged as one of the century’s greatest film directors. Through his long and distinguished career he managed, like very few others in the teeth of a huge and relentless industry, to elevate each of his films to a distinctive level of art. His ‘Rashomon’ – one of the best-remembered and most talked-of films in any language – was a revelation when it appeared in 1950 and did much to bring Japanese cinema to the world’s attention. Kurosawa’s films display an extraordinary breadth and an astonishing strength, from the philosophic and sexual complexity of ‘Rashomon’ to the moral dedication of ‘Ikiru’, from the naked violence of ‘Seven Samurai’ to the savage comedy of ‘Yojimbo’, from the terror-filled feudalism of ‘Throne of blood’ to the piercing wit of ‘Sanjuro’.
