    The Brilliance of Kukrosawa

    olskoolgod, United States of America (Reviewer Ranking: 13) wrote this review on October 18, 2005:

    This set has to be, if not THE best, in the top three greatest film boxed sets ever released. Truly amazing and magnificent. Thank god for Criterion. This is perfect for any movie lover, for these films are the creme de la creme. Perhaps not the best Kurosawa films (Though Seven Samuria must be on anyone's top 10 all-time list), this is certainly worth it. Pony up and enjoy.
