“White Samurai,” An Homage To Legendary Director Akira Kurosawa

You may think this video is a bit too Japanese for a Chinese blog — I mean that in the most neutral way possible; on second thought, what a regrettable opening line for a post — but this work is a tribute to director Akira Kurosawa (Rashoman, Seven Samurai), who none other than China’s Zhang Yimou called “the quintessential Asian director.”

The video is by Ken Tanaka, who you might remember for the video “What Kind of Asian are You?

      A “tribute” to Kurosawa.

      It’s not much of a tribute. I suppose it’s easier to mock Kurosawa than to praise him.

      Kurosawa and Japanese cinema left China in the dust about 6/7 decades ago, and I never tire of making this point.

      China. Shit. Never even rate as a small potato.

      You need a real cinephile on this sort of stuff, young master Tao.
