The first Japanese director to make a major breakthrough in the west, Akira Kurosawa stands as one of the most internationally influential directors in the history of cinema.

Kurosawa introduced or popularized many editing and narrative techniques that would inspire (or be copied by) such filmmakers as Sergio Leone, Sam Peckinpah, George Lucas, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, and Walter Hill. 📽️
