In 2008 we kicked off the Akira Kurosawa Online Film Club, our very own “movie of the month” group. Now, seven years, almost a hundred films and some four thousand posts later, we are about to reach the end of the film club’s second cycle. The question then becomes: what are we going to watch next?
The first cycle of the film club ran from 2008 to 2010 and covered the thirty films that Kurosawa directed during his career. The second cycle started in 2010 and again took us through Kurosawa’s thirty films, but this time in chronological order and with related films by other directors inserted between Kurosawa’s.
What should we do next? Which films would you like us to watch? What system should we follow? This is totally up to you guys, so whether you are a seasoned participant, a lurker or a newcomer, voice your opinion in the comments below.
If you have previously not taken part in the Akira Kurosawa film club, check out the film club page for more information about the concept. We look forward to hearing from you!
