I think Godzilla was my introduction to Japanese cinema, followed closely by Seven Samurai. I then pretty much immediately picked up Ran. Grabbed Rashomon much more recently and I think that's actually the extent of it for me.

Ran is on my wishlist. Just pacing my trigger finger a little while longer.

Something for the eyes? Are you region free or B capable? then the Ran 4K restoration.

If not Kagemusha and Dreams from criterion. Beautiful films.

I know. He tries to compare everything to that regardless of decade, director, DP and filmstock. Not to mention wow this is almost 4K quality!

not debating the merits of the cinematography, but I feel that I've seen many older films on Blu-ray that were as good / maybe better 'at home' viewing experiences than Lawrence of Arabia based on PQ and other visual aesthetic.

I have a lowly plasma, but I must confess that Lawrence of Arabia looks incredible. I was absolutely floored when I watched this on Blu-Ray.

I would recommend you start with Takashi Miike's films. Start with Happiness of the Katakuris, then Visitor Q, then Ichi the Killer, then As The Gods Will and top off your marathon with Audition...

2008's Ichi was a bit of a spin-off too.
