Contest - Win a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate and Eclipse Series 23: The First Films of Akira Kurosawa
This summer, one of my goals is to watch every Criterion Collection film streaming on Netflix. I decided to group my viewings by director, and among the first films I watched were the eight available films by legendary Japanese director Akira Kurosawa.
This week the Criterion Collection releases Eclipse Series 23: The First Films of Akira Kurosawa, a box set which features four of the director's early films (Sanshiro Sugata, Sanshiro Sugata, Part Two, The Most Beautiful, The Men Who Tread on the Tiger's Tail). All four of these films have been previously collected in the box set AK 100: 25 Films of Akira Kurosawa.
As for my goal of watching all 139 Criterion Collection films streaming at Netflix, I am about halfway there (luckily I had seen many of these previously). However, once I am done, I will be looking for other classic films to enjoy. Any suggestions?
To enter the contest, leave a comment in this post with the name of your favorite movie.
The winner will receive a copy of Eclipse Series 23: The First Films of Akira Kurosawa, along with a $100 Threadless gift certificate (to buy such movie-related t-shirts as Hollywood Swindle, Movies: Ruining the Book Since 1920, and others.
