Akira Kurosawa and Intertextual Cinema

James Goodwin Price: $25.95

"This is the first book that attempts to link his work to trends and issues that cut across national boundaries and transcend immediate historical circumstances. Extremely well written, well considered, and provocative, it moves Kurosawa's cinema into the realm of international culture where it belongs." -- David Desser, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

"Goodwin's analysis is most interesting in tis account of how many Kurosawa plots (like Rashomon and Ikiru feature a modernist competition between texts to argue a version of what 'really' happened." -- Journal of Asian Studies
