Honor Kurosawa, watch his flicks for free
05:00 AM, Mar 25, 2013
Saturday marks what would’ve been Akira Kurosawa’s 103rd birthday. As a tribute to the legendary director, Hulu has “unlocked” his Criterion Collection films, so viewers can watch them for free all weekend.
Among the highlights are Seven Samurai, Rashomon and Yojimbo, along with such other critical favorites as Drunken Angel, The Hidden Fortress and my husband’s personal fave, Throne of Blood. (Note: The Criterion editions of these DVDs are really spectacular, so if you like what you see, you may want to purchase them.)
Twenty-four films along with select extras are available at Hulu.com through Sunday at midnight. Make a date.
