Review: Peter Wild’s Akira Kurosawa (Critical Lives)
Peter Wild‘s Akira Kurosawa is the first new English language Kurosawa book to come out in two years, and the first serious attempt at a career-spanning biography and evaluation of Kurosawa’s films for quite a while. I am here to tell you how it fares. Published as part of Reaktion Books’s Critical Lives series, Wild’s Akira Kurosawa is a compact, 208-page little paperback book that aims to serve as an introduction to the subject at hand.
