Bio
Kurosawa has had a greater influence on world cinema than any other Japanese director, ranging from the works of Steven Spielberg to the 'spaghetti westerns' of Clint Eastwood. He started out as a painter, trained in the Western school, but gave it up to become an assistant director at the age of 26. He also became an accomplished scriptwriter before making his directorial debut in 1943 with the entertaining Sugata Sanshiro, full of exciting martial arts fight scenes. After World War II, he made several films dealing with the war and its aftermath which enhanced his reputation. In 1950, Kurosawa used medieval Japan as the setting for the first of his great works, Rashomon (the title refers to one of the city gates of Kyoto and was the title of one of two short stories on which the movie was based). It centers around four characters different 'true' accounts of a rape and murder and examines the nature of truth.

Rashomon was the first Japanese movie to win an international award, taking first prize at the Venice Film Festival in 1951. It also launched the career of actor Mifune Toshiro (1920-98), who appeared in 16 of Kurosawa's 29 films. To Live (Ikiru, 1952) dealt with the question of how we can live a meaningful life through the story of a bureaucrat who has cancer and only six months to live. Kurosawa's next film, the epic Seven Samurai (Shichinin no Samurai, 1954), hardly needs an introduction. It always ranks as one of the greatest films ever made and even inspired a classic western, The Magnificent Seven. An unemployed samurai is asked to help a farm village under attack from bandits. He recruits six others and together they defeat the bandits but not without losing four of their own. A film of heroism, humor and humanity, it affirms the need to fight for a good cause but asks "At what price?"

Academy award Other Kurosawa classics include Yojimbo (1961) and The Shadow Warrior (Kagemusha, 1980). The former was remade as the classic Clint Eastwood western A Fistful of Dollars while the the latter won the Grand Prix at Cannes. In 1990, he made Akira Kurosawa's Dreams and was awarded a lifetime achievement Academy Award in Hollywood. His last film, No, Not Yet! was released in 1993.

Kurosawa readily acknowledged the great director Mizoguchi Kenji as his master. But it was his relationship with the West that most easily seen in his work. While his films influenced many foreign filmmakers, he was in turn influenced by the great American director John Ford and the works of foreign writers. The Idiot (Hakuchi, 1951) was based on the Dostoevsky novel, The Lower Depths (Donzoko, 1957) on the Gorky play, while Throne of Blood (Kumonosujo, 1957) and Ran (1985) were versions of Shakespeare's Macbeth and King Lear. Within the Japanese film world, Kurosawa was both praised and vilified for being such a 'Western' director, as if his films were seen as somehow not quite Japanese. The criticism and difficulties he encountered as a result led him to attempt suicide in 1971.

Kurosawa passed away in September 1998, less than a year after the death of his favorite leading man, Mifune. In 1999, a script which he completed just before his death was turned into the film When the Rain Lifts (Ame Agaru). A period piece with a fine cast, the film was warmly received but clearly lacked one thing - the magic of one of the world's visionary directors.

Trivia
  • His films are frequently copied and remade by American and European filmmakers.
  • In December 1971, after a period of suffering from mental fatigue and frustrated with a run of unsatisfying and sub par directing work, Kurosawa attempted suicide by slashing his wrist thirty times with a razor. Fortunately, the wounds were not fatal and he made a full recovery.
  • Because he could not get film financing for a period of time in his career, he directed and even appeared in Japanese television commercials.
  • At over 6' feet tall, he was extremely large by Japanese standards, having stood a head taller than any of his colleagues.
  • Although the Japanese press tried to paint him as a tyrant, almost all of his casts and crews agreed he was a much more cool and detached presence on sets. Many also described him as "intense".
  • He was voted the 6th greatest director of all time by Entertainment Weekly, making him the only Asian on a list of 50 directors and the highest ranking non-American.
  • Biography in: John Wakeman, editor. "World Film Directors, Volume One, 1890- 1945". Pages 583-605. New York: The H.W. Wilson Company, 1987.
  • Kurosawa worshipped legendary American director John Ford, his primary influence as a filmmaker. When the two met, Ford was uncommonly pleasant to the younger Japanese filmmaker and after wards Kurosawa dressed in a similar fashion to Ford when on film sets.
  • Unbeknownst to many people, Kurosawa had always wanted to make a Godzilla film of his own, but the executives at Toho Co., Ltd. (the Japanese studio that produces all the Godzilla films) wouldn't let him because they feared it would cost too much.
  • According to his family, he rarely thought about anything other than films. Even when at home, he would sit around silently, apparently composing shots in his head.
  • Although he received an Honorary Award in 1990 "For cinematic accomplishments that have inspired, delighted, enriched and entertained worldwide audiences and influenced filmmakers throughout the world," he was only nominated once for a Best Director Oscar for Ran (1985). Also, his only film to have ever received the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar was for Dersu Uzala (1975), which was also his only film not done in Japanese (it was in Russian).
  • He had a son Hisao (b. 20-Dec-1945), and a daughter, award-winning film costume designer Kazuko (b. 29-Apr-1954).
  • His Dodesukaden (1970), Dersu Uzala (1975) and Kagemusha (1980) were Oscar-nominated for "Best Foreign Language Film". "Dersu Uzala" won. Rashômon (1950) won an Honorary Award as the most outstanding foreign language film released in the United States during 1951.
  • Ranked #6 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Greatest directors ever!" [2005]
  • In the 1990s he referred to Kagemusha (1980), which some have considered a great film on its own, as a mere "dress rehearsal" for _Ran (1985)_ (qv_ (both are epics about failing emperors set roughly in the same historical era), with the latter film having been his passion for roughly a decade before he made it.
  • His two favorite actors to work with were apparently Takashi Shimura and, more famously, Toshirô Mifune. Kurosawa made 16 films with Mifune (almost always in a leading role) and 21 films with Shimura (in either a leading or supporting role).
  • He worked with most of his cast and crew members repeatedly, similarly to the way his idol John Ford used the same people again and again. When Kurosawa was at his working peak, it was widely thought that if he didn't work with an actor or crew member again, the implication was that he did not like them.
  • He was born the youngest of four children for Isamu and Shima Kurosawa. As a child, he revered his elder brother Heigo. While young Akira was mainly into painting, Heigo was a film-lover and worked as a "benshi", a narrator/ commentator for foreign silent films. Akira's love for film was handed down from his brother. Unfortunately, Heigo suffered from depression and committed suicide. Short thereafter, both Akira's eldest brother and only sister died from illnesses, leaving Akira the only remaining child. His siblings' deaths (particularly that of Heigo) was a traumatic experience for Akira and is thought to have considerably darkened his world view.
  • He was a fan of the films of Satyajit Ray.
  • Several of his films have been remade in America as westerns. Shichinin no samurai (1954) ("The Seven Samurai") was remade as The Magnificent Seven (1960), and Yôjinbô (1961) ("The Bodyguard") was remade as Per un pugno di dollari (1964). In addition, Kakushi-toride no san-akunin (1958) ("The Hidden Fortress") was a major inspiration for the "Star Wars" saga, which takes many inspirations from westerns and is often referred to as a space western. Common story elements include Gen. Makabe, who became Obi-Wan Kenobi; Princess Yuki, who became Princess Leia and whose trick of disguising herself as a handmaiden would later be used by Queen Amidala; and the farmers from whose viewpoint the film is told, Matashichi and Tahei, whose constant bickering inspired C-3PO and R2-D2.
  • One his closest friends was Ishirô Honda, the writer-director behind Gojira (1954).
  • He was infamous for his perfectionism. Among the related tales are his insisting a stream be made to run in the opposite direction in order to get a better visual effect, and having the roof of a house removed, later to be replaced, because he felt the roof's presence to be unattractive in a short sequence filmed from a train. He also required that all the actors in his period films had to wear their costumes for several weeks, daily, before filming so that they would look lived in.
  • Although his "samurai" films are considered the archetypal samurai films over the rest of the world, they were actually considered atypical in Japan. Most Japanese samurai films had been set in the 18th & 19th centuries, when a peaceful Japan was at the peak of its nationalism, with the largest number of bushido code-adhering samurai. Kurosawa's films typically feature individualistic "ronin" (masterless samurai) rather than true "samurai" and a majority are set in the far more chaotic feudal periods (16th-17th centuries) when the Japanese were engaged in civil war.
  • His favorite Japanese director was Kenji Mizoguchi.
  • He named the film that made him want to work in cinema as Abel Gance's film La roue (1923), particularly certain kinetic shots of trains.
  • He was a fan of the work of Sergei M. Eisenstein, who, like Kurosawa, edited his own films.
  • He believed his years as an assistant director were invaluable. In Japanese cinema at that time, assistant directors dabbled in virtually every aspect of film production and Kurosawa, among other things, learned all about editing, set-decorating, costume-design and working with actors. Almost all of the assistant directors in Kurosawa's day were aspiring to become full-fledged directors. He felt that it was a shame that, in more modern Japanese cinema and in America, the assistant director doesn't accrue as much experience and usually permanently stays as an assistant director throughout his career and that there would be a great number of excellent directors had they had his training.
  • Many of the characters in his period films were loosely based on historical figures.
  • He was made a Fellow of the British Film Institute in recognition of his outstanding contribution to film culture.
  • Is not related to Kiyoshi Kurosawa.
  • His mentor was 'Kajiro Yamamoto'.
  • Awarded the French Legion of Honor, 1984.
  • Awarded the Kyoto Prize, 1994.
  • Father of Hisao Kurosawa.
  • Father of Kazuko Kurosawa.
