    Japanese Folk Variations After World War II

    "Trolley Mania" received such a flood of negative reviews that it almost killed Akira Kurosawa's film "Am I going to make a samurai movie that will kill me all my life until I die?" . Can you make a movie that bravely uncovers the scars of the Japanese people and reflects the current social...

    Rescue and self-help

    Chaotic, blind life, no trajectory to follow, everything is irregular. Because human nature itself is blind and irregular, the existence of each special individual is without precedent. Looking at the people in "A Small Market Without Seasons", it seems that they are looking at all living beings....

    Akira Kurosawa and Color

    Akira Kurosawa's first color film. As expected of a person who once wanted to be a painter, his control of color is also very good. It's just that he focuses on marginal characters, the theme deviates from the taste of mainstream audiences, and he is destined to suffer a fiasco at the box....

    Have a cigarette ready before watching

    After watching this film by the master, I couldn't help but want to smoke, not because of addiction, but because of boredom. It's boring, because the seemingly heterogeneous behavior of the characters in the film is beyond the logical scope of normal people's behavior, but it does not mean that it...

    Akira Kurosawa

    "Trolley Mania", the first color Kurosawa Akira film, with a fateful and pessimistic ending, is an important and tragic work in the director's career. Suicide, although attempted suicide, also deeply affected the director's future works and outlook on life, and even influenced Hollywood producer...

    [Small market without seasons]

    An often overlooked masterpiece.

    Naturally, I prefer the literary title [Xiaoxu Without Seasons], because it is more suitable for the narrative style of group portraits in this anti-plot work.

    The sincere cooperation of the "Four Horsemen" back then is enviable to this day. Akira...

    All I see in this movie are lunatics

    The old beggar is clearly Socrates and the little beggar is Glaucon. Socrates explained to Glaucon how to build an ideal state. Socrates had all kinds of ideas, but every time Glaucon answered only one sentence: "Yes" or "Yes", and occasionally argued a few sentences but gave them to Su Crates...
