High and Low is very taut and lean in construction, but I penalize it because it just sort of brings me down in a non-gutwrenching way. Not really a fair reason for penalizing it, but there you are.

Just saw this. Didn't like it as much as Stray Dog, but it was still excellent. I get what you meant by this comment now...

For my speech class we had to give eight-minute presentations that educated people on a topic. I chose the filmography of Kurosawa and talked about how his films influenced westerns and action movies. Did a pretty damn good job, if I do say so myself.

I was browsing through Netflix and noticed that Kagemusha was there. The listed runtime was about two and a half hours compared to the three hour runtime I've heard it has, so I'm not sure if that was a listing error or if I should just rent the film from my library.

Ran and Kagemusha are good period pieces, but they miss something. Mainly this guy:

(Again, not a fair evaluation).
Upon watching the latter I understand what Catbus meant by this. It dragged a lot more than I was hoping, but it's still pretty good overall. Tatsuya Nakadai makes for a capable late era muse for Kurosawa, and the last hour is quite solid (with the last ten minutes being quite emotionally potent).
