SEVEN SAMURAI: One of the most beloved movie epics of all time. Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai is the story of a sixteenth-century village whose desperate inhabitants hire seven out-of-work warriors to protect them from invading bandits. This three-hour ride -- featuring legendary actors Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura -- seamlessly weaves philosophy, entertainment, and relentless action into a rich, evocative, and unforgettable tale of courage and hope. ~~~RASHOMON: Brimming with action while incisively examining the nature of truth, Rashomon is perhaps the finest film ever to challenge perceptions of reality and justice. Kurosawa reveals the complexities of human nature as four people recount different versions of the story of a man's murder and the rape of his wife. Toshiro Mifune gives another commanding performance.~~~IKIRU: Considered by many to be Akira Kurosawa's greatest achievement, Ikiru (To Live) presents the director at his most compassionate - affirming life through the exploration of a man's death. Takashi Shimura portrays Kanji Watanabe, an aging bureaucrat with stomach cancer forced to strip the veneer from his existence and find meaning in his final days. The result is a multifaceted look at a life through a prism of perspectives, resulting in the full portrait of a misunderstood man.~~~TOKYO STORY: Yasujiro Ozu's Tokyo Story follows an aging couple, Tomi and Shukichi, as they journey from their rural village to visit their two married children in bustling, postwar Tokyo. Their reception, however, is disappointing: too busy to entertain them, their children send them off to the hot springs. After Tomi falls ill, she and Shukuchi return home; the children, grief-stricken, hasten to be with her. From a simple tale unfolds one of the greatest of all Japanese Films. the film reprises one of the director's favorite themes - that of generational conflict - in a way that is quintessentially Japanese, and yet universal in its appeal.
