British Film Institute Akira Kurosawa Centenary
- Paul Dale
- 7 July 2010
This very impressive British Film Institute touring programme finally reaches the west. Among the many highlights are a new digital restoration of Rashomon plus rare outings for his 1948 gangster flick Drunken Angel and his 1952 dissection of class and feudal morays They Who Step on the Tiger's Tail. Also showing and always worth seeing on the big screen are mighty revenge tragedy The Bad Sleep Well, meditative medical drama Red Beard, Shakespearean epic Ran, nuclear paranoia diatribe I Live in Fear, Kurosawa’s moving essay on mortality Living and much more. All life is here, you will not see any better films in Scotland over the next few months.
Ticket deals available – you’re going to need them.
GFT, Glasgow from Sun 11 Jul-Sun 22 Aug.
