Kurosawa continues to inspire people in many interesting ways. One of the most fascinating examples of this that I have seen in the recent past I stumbled upon this morning at a Blogspot blog by Lewis Saul. For, in the past decade, Saul has watched Kurosawa’s films with a keen eye, and written very detailed transcriptions of the director’s movies with also some commentary included.
Saul has now posted these transcriptions on his website for everyone to enjoy. While I have not yet had the time to do any detailed study of the texts, they seem to be very well written. It must have been quite an amount of work to write these, for which I certainly tip my virtual hat in awe.
The transcriptions can be accessed from this page. Currently, it appears that texts are available for the first ten movies, i.e. up to Scandal.
