All day, Japanese Samurai movies on TCM, a tribute to Toshiro Mifune. This morning I caught part of Rashomon! I’m not at all in the demographic, but I find this stuff mesmerizing, so if you do, too - TCM all day and into the night.
I noticed it, and set the DVR to record The Seven Samurais so that I can watch it for the 907th time. Good stuff.
Damn! I don’t get TCM.
Are they only running Akira Kurasawa movies, or do they have works from other directors? He played Admiral Yamamoto in Tora!Tora!Tora!, Toranaga in *Shogun, and the samurai Jubei in the weird western Red Sun.
Thanks for the head’s up. I’ll be tuning in.
What’s that movie that’s on right now, that is set in a hospital for poor people? I came in as the credits were rolling, and missed the title.
There’s a “demographic” for Rashōmon?
