    I was excited to see a new film from the ever-amazing Kurosawa Kiyoshi will bow at the festival. Then I read that it is 270 minutes long. That's okay, I'll do the math for you. That's 4 1/2 hours.

    Here's hoping the film gets bought and edited down to an appropriate length before it arrives on American shores.
