Akira Kurosawa's Dreams
Akira Kurosawa's Dreams ★★½ Dreams; Yume; I Saw a Dream Like This; Konna Yume Wo Mita 1990 (PG)
An anthological lesson regarding the simultaneous loss of humanity and nature that threatens us all from the renowned Japanese director. Although the startling and memorable imagery is still present, Kurosawa's lessons are strangely trite and consequently lack the power that is normally associated with his work. Watch for Scorsese as Van Gogh. With English subtitles. 120m/C VHS, DVD .
