Currently playing at the AK film club: Ran (Kurosawa 1985)

Toru Takemitsu documentary

A documentary on the soundtrack work of Toru Takemitsu has appeared on YouTube. You can watch the first part here, and follow the “Related videos” links to continue with parts 2 through 6. The documentary is about 50 minutes long, but is recorded with an unfortunately poor sound and film quality.

Takemitsu, of course, scored Dodesukaden and Ran, thus creating what I would personally call some of the most memorable scores heard in a Kurosawa film.

Hmm I think I will this watch anyway since Takemitsu is one of my favorite composers I know next to nothing about. Look at me posting a comment on this weeks after the story was put up… silly me.
