AK-100: Akira Kurosawa’s 100th Birthday

In honor of the great one, Akira Kurosawa’s 100th birthday, here’s “Akira Kurosawa: 10 essential films for the director’s centenary” (I’ve seen all but one). I am happy to see Stray Dog and Drunken Angel on this list of essentials. Am still tempted to buy my very own AK-100, if only so I can watch more of the earlier films not previously available in the USA — Sanshiro Sugata, They Who Step on the Tiger’s Tail. Not sure which film I will celebrate with this evening, so I’m open to suggestions.
