Abstract:

With the production of Seven Samurai (1954), the most popular and important Japanese film of its time, Kurosawa began a long and fruitful obsession with medieval Japan. From The Hidden Fortress (1958), which pioneered widescreen cinematography in Japan, to the samurai-for-hire pair of Yojimbo (1961) and Sanjuro (1962), which launched the "Spaghetti Western" in Italy, Kurosawa reinvigorated the samurai film genre and revitalized the American Western in the process. Presented here are Kurosawa's greatest samurai films, starring long-time collaboratior Toshiro Mifune.
