Picture Perfect: May 1 - Akira Kurosawa

seven_samurai_soundtrack.jpg

Nothing says May Day quite like samurai movies!  In this, the centenary of the birth of Toshiro Mifune, it’s music from the films of Akira Kurosawa.  Tune in for selections from “Seven Samurai” (Fumio Hayazaka), “Dodes’kaden” (Toru Takemitsu), “Roshomon” (again Hayazaka), and “Yojimbo” (Masura Sato).  It’s three-quarters Mifune, and fifty-percent samurai.  We’ll have you runnin’ for the ronin, this Friday at 6 pm.
