Happy 100th birthday...

...Akira Kurosawa.

Today at Criterion's Current: In one sentence, convince a friend who is unfamiliar with Kurosawa to watch one of his films.

Later edit: The winning entry — "He's your favorite director's favorite director" — is so pithy and concise and on the nose that my own entry, which I liked at the time, now clods along as if it's wearing shoes three sizes too big. Nice.
