Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Favorite Films

Kiyoshi Kurosawa is one of my favorite directors and I was intrigued by his list of favorite films (he listed them by year from earliest release to latest) originally posted on the French site lacinetek.com so I decided to share them here.

Since then I've continued to update the list with new additions taken from various sources thanks to exchanges with other Letterboxd users in the comments. As a result, the list has morphed into a more complete list of Kurosawa's favorite films. If you have a contribution please feel free to share it & thanks for reading!
