A few years ago, I was doing a good job and ended up watching 13 of his movies but, by now, it has been almost 10 years since I saw another one of his movies. It is a real shame but maybe I will pick it up again later on. Anyway, this flick is probably one of his most famous ones and therefore I was real... read more

Brilliant acting by Mifune and veiled anti-capitalist themes make this a masterpiece of the "Samurai Movie" sub-genre. There are so many tensions: corruption vs morality, greed vs self-sacrifice, samurai order vs gangster chaos, even the sword vs the gun. It's hardly a surprise when the streets are eventually filled with dead bodies!

The directing by Kurosawa is geared towards build... read more

Perhaps Kurosawa's most enjoyable movie

"I'll get paid for killing, and this town is full of people who deserve to die."

At once a dark comedy, an action movie and a morality play, Yojimbo is one of Akira Kurosawa's greatest and most essential motion pictures (from a filmography beset with highly regarded flicks). Though Kurosawa is such a revered cinematic giant, I imagine his films seem uninteresting and daunting for ca... read more

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (216 movies items)

"10.5 Kurosawan kunnianosoitus John Fordin westerneille, jota ilman ei Sergio Leonen Dollari-trilogiaa olisi syntynyt. Kourallinen dollareitahan on melkein yksi yhteen suora kopio tästä. Toshiro Mifunen Sanjuro on puolestaan prototyyppi Clint Eastwoodin nimettömälle antisankarille. Painostava elokuva, jossa kuolema on jatkuvasti läsnä ja Sanjuron on tyydyttävä taistelutaitojensa lisäksi myös oveluuteen voittaakseen pikkukylän rauhaa häiritsevät rikolliset."

Films that absolutely needed that remake. (10 movies items)

"Sergio Leone's 1964, A Fistful of Dollars "Americanized" this Japanese film. Both are great!"
