Kagemusha 

Akira Kurosawa

Published December 08, 2005.KagemushaDirected by: Akira Kurosawa(Paradox/Criterion)Available on DVD in the (first time in North America) 20-minute longer version, the added length doesn't make Kagemusha more tedious. Denser and more exhilarating, it restores Akira Kurosawa's masterpiece. Text on the DVD box calls Kagemusha "a play between illusion and reality." It's really more interesting in its look at the denial of defeat as a ruse toward victory. The two-disc set includes an interview with producers George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola, who helped fund the film when a suicidal Kurosawa couldn't get financing.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)
