Ha, I finally managed to see The Seven Samurai, which is, indeed, an excellent movie. Very powerful, greatly acted. I like it more than Ran, for example, but I'd like to see also Rashomon.

I recommend you Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo and C'era una volta il west. Wonderful movies, even better than the westerns by John Ford or Howard Hawks. Beautiful musical score. My opinion.

I just saw Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo and I agree it's a wonderful movie. I grew up listening to its score, so it was interesting to finally hear it in the context of the movie.

I'm glad you liked The Seven Samurai. Kurosawa is now one of my favorite directors. You should try to see all his films.

I just watched the impressive Shakespeare-adaptation Throne of Blood. Wonderful.

Only some days ago I have discovered that our national library has got a lot of Kurosawa-films: Kagemusha, Dodesukaden, Rashômon, Ikiru, The Hidden Fortress, Not Yet, Rhapsody in August, The Lower Depths, I live in fear, Drunken Angel, Dreams, Dersu Uzala, Sanjuro, Red Beard, The Idiot and The Quiet Duel. Now I can't wait to see them all, but I really don't know where to begin. Maybe you can tell me which one among these is the best.

Moreover they have got a lot of Truffaut, Visconti, Fellini, Godard, Rohmer, Bergman, Fassbinder, Herzog, Wenders, Jarmusch, etc. there. I am truly euphoric.

Sounds like a great library!! Too bad Belgium is so far away from where I live :(.

I would advise you to view ALL the Kurosawa films in chronological order, rather than going from "best" to "worst", which means starting with Drunken Angel.

However, if you insist on seeing only the best, see Rashômon. Then Ikiru. Then Sanjuro.

Second that, although I haven't seen Sanjuro yet, so I'll swap in Red Beard, which I loved.

Thanks, Rosie, thanks, jim.

I think I'll try it in chronological order then (also maybe to discover a certain evolution in Kurosawa's style?).

N.B.: I'm not from Belgium, but from Luxembourg (so even smaller, and deeper in the heart of Europe). ;)

And indeed it is a great library. Moreover it is not too expensive, as it is FREE! Ha.

I sincerely beg your pardon for my error. Blame my faulty memory.

I think you will see Kurosawa grow and change as a director, although he starts out pretty strong.

Hey, no problem.
It's as if you tell an American, that he is Canadian (or vice-versa), or an German that he is Austrian. Some like that, some don't.

I really have no problem with our Belgian neighbours.

I'm glad it's not an insult to be Belgian :).

Generally-speaking, Americans are ignorant of European geography, but I think I'm better than most, so I'm embarrassed when I make a mistake.

Good to hear, because most people either think that Luxembourg is a part of Germany, or confuse it with the 'Province du Luxembourg' in Belgium or the 'Jardin du Luxembourg' in Paris.
