As Kurosawa entered his 80th year, his films took on more deeply moralistic themes. Akira Kurosawa's Dreams was an episodic film, following eight stories, that are bound by the theme of Humanity's destruction of nature. Rhapsody in August was Kurosawa's attempt to find piece in the painful memories of the bombing of Nagasaki. Kurosawa is a master of visual and poetic art in cinema. He portrays Japan of the past as a brutal society full of destructive rulers, warlords and warriors. He portrays present Japan as a society that is rapidly changing from the old, simplistic ways of doing things, to a more modern technological culture.
Kurosawa's films are constantly being discovered by new generations of filmgoers and filmakers. I hope that his stories and films live on for more people, people who have not yet been born, to see and enjoy this amazing director's work. My rating on a scale of 1 to 10: 10
