As with abstract expressionism, Western fascination with Eastern aesthetics can be seen in cinema—epitomized by the work of Kurosawa and his impact on Hollywood. Kurosawa developed a unique approach to image-making all his own, which then inspired the Western imagination starting from the early 1940s until the 1990s.
