"Is this a new, unused collection? Unopened?"
This box set is for everyone. It is the perfect introduction to Kurosawa since it is an almost complete library of all his films (only 5 films are missing since Criterion didn't own the rights to them). It is also for film geeks who love a fantastic looking box set. The hard cover book it comes with is great as well. Well worth the money....
