"Astonishingly beautiful. Pure screen enchantment." -Vincent Canby, The New York Times

Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola and other moviemakers cite him as a primal influence. The Magnificent Seven, A Fistful of Dollars and the Star Wars sagas were inspired by his work. He's Akira Kurosawa, considered one of the 20th-century's greatest film directors.

Akira Kurosawa's Dreams is one of the most visionary, deeply personal works in the 60-years career of the master behind Rashomon, The Seven Samurai and Ran. Comprised of eight episodes rich in imagery and insight (and featuring Scorsese as Vincent Van Gogh), it explores the costs of war, the perils of nuclear power and especially humankind's need to harmonize with nature. You will be enchanted...and enthralled.
