Favorite Foreign Films: The Seven Samurai (1954)

Film: The Seven Samurai
Country: Japan
Director: Akira Kurosawa

I stayed away as long as I could, but finally will visit the world of Kurosawa. The inspiration for countless directors, including Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, Kurosawa’s work continues to be legendary. If asked to choose the single film which best displays what I love most about his films, I would have a difficult time choosing between The Seven Samurai and Yojimbo. I’ve chosen to feature the former, but consider the latter, as well, if you’ve not seen it. Either way, Toshiro Mifune’s performances deserve accolades.
