|Japan’s most famous director, the late Akira Kurosawa, captures his dreams on film in eight chromatically brilliant vignettes that include a wedding procession of foxes, a platoon of ghosts, post-apocalyptic human mutations and a meeting with Vincent Van Gogh. |
Kurosawa, who created this film when he was in his eighties, had no peer when it came to splashing the screen with sumptuous colors and awesome images.
