Might be the best visual experience I've had.
This movie is like having a dream , amazing scenes unexpected endings
Great visuals. "The Crows" was probably my favourite visually, but "The Tunnel" had the best dialogue.
There’s a lot you can take from this film but I found it to be a great fantastical examination of human guilt and its many manifestations.
I loved getting invested into each of the stories. The imagery made my heart full of satisfaction and appreciation✨
Beautiful film showing a very personal account of Akira Kurosawa life and how he views the world.
Lovely stuff. Of course some are better than others but all and all Kurosawa delivers awesome visuals and sincere stories
Fascinating idea, drama made by Kurosawa based on eight dreams, beautiful visually
could be better if the moral isnt that explicit
Visually, it's delightful with great cinematography and beautiful locations. Unfortunately, all of the "dreams" are incredibly boring.
