It's That Time Again!
Last year, I hosted a Blog-A-Thon for Alfred Hitchcock. My reasoning was that I hadn't seen nearly enough of this man's works. My method was to try and watch every single thing he ever made by the date I held the event, November 15th, 2006.
I liked having this marathon-style, director-themed 'Thon so much I decided to have it every year.
This year, starting on November 15th I will be doing the same thing for another man on my 'not-nearly-watched-enough director' list: Akira Kurosawa.
As with most Blog-A-Thons, the rules are simple:
Write something having something to do with Japanese Director Akira Kurosawa and post it on your site on November 15th - 22nd. Email me or comment your link so I can add it to my master list. If you don't have a blog, send me your essay, photos or comments and I'll be glad to put it up for you.
Articles can include anything from reviews of the man's films to his production style, or feel free to touch upon his dramatic personal life. Remakes, book reviews, comparissons of his Shakespeare versus those of other directors... Anything goes!
As for me I'll be hitting the archives and watching (as much as possible) everything he's ever made in preparation for a post of my own. Between now and November, you can follow along as I post reviews of my recent chronological viewings of the films he's directed - and decide for yourselves if it's worthy of watching or not.
Keep your eyes on these pages as I immerse myself in greatness!
