it's meant to be watched on a screen that you have to use a magnifying glass for.

But I felt him bringing the ruckus on the doctor that just treated him was extra gangsta.

Mifune will always be that dude.

That scene where the women are yelling down the well was really beautiful to me.

And I love how adorably grumpy Mifune is.

Probably my favorite Kurosawa movie, depending on what mood I'm in--it alternates with Ikiru.

Seven Samurai is the most enjoyable film and most perfect film I've ever watched.

Mifune is the most watchable actor I've ever watched. Every time I watch a Mifune flick (especially Yojimbo and Sanjuro - da-da) I walk around like Mifune (complete with hunched-back) for a good couple of hours, looking to out-macho every cunt I meet.

Ikiru is beautiful but very slow moving. Bad starting place for a Kurosawa newcomer. Ran is an amazing looking film, just without the heart of Seven Samurai. Yojimbo and Sanjuro are the best places to start a Kurosawa binge. It's impossible to not enjoy those wild-ass flicks.

Sanjuro has THE GREATEST BATTLE ENDING OF ALL TIME. That shit had me pumped for days after I saw it. Fuck, the battle ending in Yojimbo was great enough...then I saw Sanjuro. Wow.

Only I do the scowl and certain ticks he did whichever movie, like in Rashomon or Sanjuro (remember when he kept trying to sleep? lol)

And yeah, that ending battle get you pumped!
