A.K. (Marker, 1980)
Chris Marker's making-of of Kurosawa's RAN
It's not a typical making-of but there are some important insights, that I would like to note.
- Same crew as from years ago (not too special)
- Everybody does everything (very special for US)
- Kurosawa is soft-spoken, or he seems to be.
- Experienced discipline will work wonders for you.
The master's quotes spoken from cassette tape are inspiring. The form of this essay is interesting, and the imagery might last, and although there are some great moments, thing become really ugly when Marker tries to be funny(?).
