23 March 1910 – 6 September 1998

One of my all time fav directors

Dont think he needs any intro but take 5 and read up on the great man! -> Akira Kurosawa

Think its fair to say he pathed the way for many in his field.

One of the true masters of Cinema.

I was very pleasantly surprised when searching for some work related crap today to see the great man commemorated on Google's homepage.
Well done to Google :smashin:

Now if only Criterion would pull their finger out and give us Seven Samurai on Blu as a birthday present*

*thanks for Yojimbo/Sanjuro btw
