Ever since I can remember I have loved the films of Akira Kurosawa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akira_Kurosawa). One film I never saw, which I did see last night, is Ikiru (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ikiru).

See a clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mLrLHDdXHI

It puts contemporary Hollywood films to shame... and I highly recommend it. Very moving... it is an alchemical journey of death and re-birth.

There has been talk of a re-make (don't know if they ever did it), but a better way to spend money would be to restore the original... the negative is scratched and the sound is not so good... still it beats Transformers 3 any day (although that is not so difficult to beat):p
