Kurosaw-a-Thon November 2007!!!
Now that the Akira Kurosawa Blog-a-Thon has ended, I want to thank everyone for participating. I'm more impressed than I expected with The Emperor's oeuvre and he's certainly one of my new favorites.
The Emperor in all his glory
My Akira Kurosawa Page is always open - only now it's full of reviews instead of merely titles, laid out for you chronologically. At the bottom of this post you'll find my top 5 rated favorite works of his, so those of you interested in only the cream of the crop, just scroll down, kiddies!
For those of you who missed the deadline but still have a post or two to forward me, I'll be glad to include your link in the Closing Ceremonies section of this post, simply leave a comment or email me, and I'll put up your thoughts post-haste. Thanks for the great time everyone!
