Akira Kurasawa film festival at the Stanford Theater, Feb 20-Mar 30

My love for the Stanford Theater knows no bounds, but during my bike ride to work today, I noticed that their new film festival featuring Akira Kurasawa is kicking off on Saturday with Seven Samurai.

I have a very limited experience with Kurosawa films; out of 30 films, I have seen only three: Ran, Rashomon, and The Bad Sleep Well. I am totally set to remedy this deficiency; Stanford Theater is showing 18 films.

Here's the trailer to The Bad Sleep Well, which is roughly based on Hamlet:
