Akira Kurosawa

Akira Kurosawa

Japanese film director Akira Kurosawa attempted suicide in 1971 by slashing his throat. He had been unable to secure financing for his films, fired from a 20th Century Fox epic production, and considered by many as old-fashioned. His hardships continued until the mid-1980s when he made the movie Ran, his last masterwork.
