The Asian of the Century, they named him. I haven't seen many movies of Kurosawa, as my focus went decidedly to Ozu. And if you say Asian, you should also think at Ray, at Kiarostami, to name but a few. But anytime I saw in some movie a scene reminding me of his style, I was overwhelmed by realizing his genius once more. He had vision, larger than life. He was one of the greatest.
