New Kurosawa Blu-Rays from Criterion in 2014

Postby Jet_Jaguar » Mon Dec 16, 2013 16:35 +0000

Criterion is releasing new dual Blu-Ray/DVD editions of Throne of Blood (January 7) and The Hidden Fortress (March 18) in 2014:

Both of those are must-sees if you haven't seen them already.

(A couple of little non-Japanese film related asides: Michael Mann's Thief is a terrific film that I would also recommend, and fans of Groo co-writer Mark Evanier might be interested to know that he participated in a commentary track for It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World).
