Coincidence?....I hardly think so!!

With this said even the Artificial Eye versions of the Trilogy are in dire need of stellar restoration work.

OY! (Slaps self on head). -cracker- Euro-centric does not mean Europen films. It means centered the around the western world. Like your history books in grade school. Gosh DARN it! I thought everyone knew that. :scratch2:

I think Criterion should stick with what they're doing. There's still ton of Kurosawa not on DVD yet. :)

Too bad there isn't another company releasing foreign films in R1 as reputable as Criterion.

Kurosawa, the middlebrow Michael Bay. ;)
