It hasn't been such a wonderful life for an office clerk with a fatal diagnosis in auteur Akira Kurosawa's compelling drama "Ikiru (Essential Art House)" (1952). Realizing his whole life has been wasted following the inconsequential and petty rules of his job, one man takes the opportunity of his last days to make a difference for those he's leaving behind. Kurosawa's unconventional narrative is masterfully handled, and the ultimately inspirational theme has been compared favorably to Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life" (1946).
