When someone as legendary as director Akira Kurosawa puts out a list of recommended movies, we listen. In a posthumously published book “Yume wa tensai de aru,” the acclaimed filmmaker lists 100 of his favorite films organized chronologically from 1919 to 1997. The catalog includes classics like Carol Reed’s “The Third Man” and Copolla’s “The Godfather, Part 2,” while other selections like Hayao Miyazaki’s “My Neighbor Totoro” are slightly less suspecting. Open Culture offers the full list for your viewing pleasure.
