kurosawa haikus (part 2)

stray dog
young cop loses gun
old cop helps him retrieve it
from the pickpocket

odd capra homage
mifune as cary grant
shyster redeems self

three views of a crime
who tells the truth? who's lying?
none sees his own face

the idiot
dostoyevsky's tale
somehow doesn't ring true set
in modern japan

dying bureaucrat
seizes the day and makes one
beautiful gesture

seven samurai
an action flick that
gets its impact from the strength
of its characters

i live in fear
a patriarch fears
nuclear oblivion
alas, still timely

throne of blood
japanese macbeth
ambition lays a lord low
a tale of hubris
