Dir. Akira Kurosawa. 1954, 207 mins. 35mm. In Japanese with English subtitles. With Toshiro Mifune, Takashi Shimura. Akira Kurosawa’s thrilling tale about a motley group of wandering samurai who decide to join forces when hired to save a peaceful village from a band of evil marauders is the ultimate action epic. Mifune has never been more hypnotically physical than as the animalistic yet lovable Kikuchiyo, and Kurosawa pulls out all the technical stops for the extended climactic battle, a virtuosic, rain-soaked set piece of quick cutting, fast and slow motion, and multiple camera angles.
