The Lens: A very Kurosawa Christmas?

This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon, Oct. 5, 2009 - Stuck for Christmas ideas when it comes to that special cinephile in your life? Got $400 to spare? The folks at the always reliable Criterion Collection are releasing a 25 film set of the films of Akira Kurosawa, a 90 percent complete filmography that includes "Rashomon," "The Seven Samurai," "Ikiru," "Yojimbo" and - obviously - a great deal more, including four films never before released on DVD.

The Lens is the blog of Cinema St. Louis, hosted by the Beacon.
