Set Your DVR, It's Kurosawa Time

On March 23, TCM will be programing only films from Japanese director Akira Kurosawa in honor of what would be his 100th birthday. I'd say anyone with an interest in cinema should devote some time to Kurosawa. I've been trying to catch up with some of these films lately as I've only seen seven of this master filmmaker's work thus far. Films scheduled to show include Seven Samuri, Yojimbo, Stray Dog, Drunken Angel, No Regrets for Our Youth, Rashomon, and Sanjuro among others. There's really no going wrong as to which films you watch, as far as I can tell. So, if your looking to improve your knowledge of foreign films and cinema in general, TCM has provided the perfect opportunity.
