No mention of Akira Kurosawa?

My favorite East Asian films:

"Ikiru" and "Seven Samurai", by Kurosawa, and "The Burmese Harp", by Kon Ichikawa.

1glenn: I wouldn't worry about it. He appears in there, with Rashoman as #2 of all times, in fact. His name just isn't mentioned in this article (it was in previous) because it only lists three Japanese, all for top awards; #1 on the list, top animated movie, and oldest. There are another 23 besides, and I have no doubt Kurosawa accounts for a good many of them and easily as Japan's best director of all times.

Ah, the Japanese and their dislike of Kurosawa. His films just aren't "Japanese enough" because they were so embraced by the International community...

Here's the full list. It's a head-scratcher.
