Criterion Collection: AK 100: 25 Films by Akira Kurosawa

The Criterion Collection has created one of the most complete collection of one of the greatest directors in the history of cinema. Released on April 29th, 25 Films by Akira Kurosawa spans over 50 years of Japanese cinema.

25 films are included in the packaging as well as an illustrated book that has introductions and notes on each work by film historian Stephen Prince and a remembrance by author Donald Richie. To top it off, the package comes in a linen bound collector’s edition casing.

The only downside: the price is $300. Ouch. Well worth the purchase though, if you have the pocket change.
