Vintage Wallpaper of the Day
Monday, November 17, 2008
Could the best movie of all-time be Ikiru? On any given day I might have it ranked as my all-time favorite, which obviously surprises many that have never even heard of this Akira Kurosawa classic at all. From an inspired performance by Takashi Shimura to its bleak and yet hopeful tones, it manages to cradle the delicate balance of the “make each day count” films without ever reaching Yanni territory, instead scaling heights like a beacon that lights the way for generations to come to remind us how powerful, personal and moving cinema can be.
Official still used in the original USA release for this film.
