“>The Return of Kurosawa & Mifune
The films of Kurosawa and Mifune return to New York for a month-long engagement at BAMcinématek! Often considered cinema’s greatest actor/director team, director Akira Kurosawa and actor Toshiro Mifune brought out the best in each other during their run of unparalleled masterpieces. Their partnerships range from historical stories (Red Beard) to samurai epics (Yojimbo) to top-notch crime thrillers (High and Low). In these films (including a newly restored print of The Lower Depths) Kurosawa’s versatility behind the camera is unrivaled, and Mifune shows why he’s considered one of cinema’s most charismatic and dynamic actors. All films in Japanese with English subtitles.
