Greetings, all. Some great news for my fellow Akira Kurosawa fans from http://www.thedigitalbits.com "Additionally, we have it on good authority that a several classic Akira Kurosawa films will arrive on DVD in 2003. Kagemusha from Fox, Dreams from Warner Bros (watch for an announcement soon) and MGM's Rhapsody in August. The good folks at Criterion are also working on a number of new Kurosawa DVDs as well, including Dodes'ka-den, for next year. Expect Wellspring's new restoration of Ran to finally hit DVD (apart from the Amazon-only collection) in 2003." Aside from Ran, I haven't heard anything solid about the rest of these releases. All this, along with Ikiru from Criterion in 2003!!!!!!! I can't wait!
