It's not a shoebox, it's linen-bound, which is actually really fucking cool. I don't own any Kurosawas, and I don't think this is a bad idea.

I'm sure the exclusive films will eventually see their own individual releases as well, They did it with the Essential Art House box.

If I had money to invest in dvd I would consider buying it.

I wonder why The Lower Depths doesn't have a PAAS colored cover up yet.

I thought the same thing, it looks pretty bad when you see that they haven't even gone for the stand alone Kurosawa cover, but the split version with Renoir's name on it!

It's not a shoebox, it's linen-bound, which is actually really fucking cool. I don't own any Kurosawas, and I don't think this is a bad idea.


For those like you who have no Kurosawa this is probably a great buy. Some of us though have every single R1 version out there. I don't think I will get this box set, but depending on price (and when the four unreleased movies will be released) will determine ultimately if I will get it.

Could someone look at the back of the Madadayo disc and let me know who it was licensed from? I am curious if it says it was licensed from Weinstein Company/Genius Products/Vivendi. Please and thanks!

For those completists that haven't taken the plunge already, this is from Criterion's Facebook:

"We’re down to the last 100 AK 100 boxsets and we won’t be making more...

This flash sale may well be your last chance to pick it up!"

I think I'm ok letting this one go, it was a bit indulgent with all the overlap of Criterion's other labels.

IF I did not have almost all the Kurosawa films individually, I would have bought this years ago, but can't really justify it now.
I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own.

Plus they are bare bones editions aren't they? Feels pointless except for Tholly.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but aren't all of the AK 100 "exclusives" now released as stand alone or as part of the eclipse sets except for Madadayo?
I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own.

I'm pretty sure you're right on that. I see Yume has an R2 DVD out for Madadayo, I've had good luck with them in the past. The Australian label Madman also has a promising looking release.

I'd just wait for the Criterion, which will undoubtedly be on Blu. Until then you can always catch it on Hulu.
