Happy 100th Birthday, Akira Kurosawa

The greatest filmmaker ever would have been 100 today. Nearly all of Kurosawa's films are eminent philosophical, epic, poignant, funny, entertaining, influential works of art. He was a cinematic genius who put everything together so perfectly. Bonus: Kurosawa's main muse, Toshiro Mifune, was one of the most captivating leading men onward to infinity. Together, along with a stock company of exceptional character actors and a collaborative crew, they were life enhancing!
