Japan | 1962 | Akira Kurosawa
In Kurosawa’s comic sequel to Yojimbo (shown in April), Toshiro Mifune’s shrewd, shambling samurai helps a group of idealistic young warriors root out corruption in their clan. Often hailed as Kurosawa’s funniest film, Sanjuro also contains a terrifically exciting climactic showdown and a groundbreaking special effect that stills startles today. With Tatsuya Nakadai and Takashi Shimura. “[Yojimbo’s] equal and one of Kurosawa’s greatest achievements.” –Danny Peary, Guide for the Film Fanatic. Scope print! Subtitles. 96 min.
