In Your Queue: 24 Free Akira Kurosawa Films on Hulu




Just to supplement our home video column this week, Criterion announced today that they would be celebrating Akira Kurosawa's birthday this weekend by streaming 24 of his films (plus a few bonus videos) for free all weekend.

The titles include some of his most famous, like The Seven Samurai, Ikiru and The High and the Low (my personal favorite), as well as some underrated films like Madadayo and Sanshiro Sugata.

Just as a sidenote, Kurosawa's Kagemusha and his samurai epic adaptation of King Lear, Ran, are both available on Netflix, though not for free.
