Seven samurai by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

14 editions published between 1954 and 2013 in Japanese and English and held by 1,355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 16th century Japan a group of rice farmers decides to take the radical step of hiring a band of mercenaries to defend their rice crop against marauding bandits. The story takes place during a period in Japanese history when society was organized along feudal lines and peasants found themselves victims of both roving samurai and gangs of bandits. Kurosawa portrays 16th century Japan as a society where starvation and calamity are so commonplace that the distinction between bandits and samurai has become blurred. The villagers hire the six ronin, or masterless samurai and one braggart (Mifune) to successfully defend their village, only three of the seven survive. Kurosawa created a visual spectacle in black and white, utilizing fast tracking shots, and quick moving montage for the battle scenes turning a story of feudalism into a modern anti war film. The original version of The Seven Samurai was shown in Tokyo but deemed too long for general release. Shorter versions were eventually released in Japan and the United States. Several years after its release, this film was remade in the United States as The Magnificent Seven starring Yul Brenner and Steve McQueen

But things never stay quiet for the masseur for very long. An old face from Ichi's childhood, Shinbei, has hatched a nefarious plot to rob the town of thier valuable community quarry. The masseur is caught in the unenviable position of mediating the conflict between his former pal and the home of his youth, with neither side willing to budge.

Bara no sōretsu Funeral parade of roses( Visual )

12 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An evocative journey through Tokyo's underground gay and transvestite club scene in the Shinjuku district. Director Matsumoto mixes documentary footage of street theater with staged scenes of Japanese youth culture as it existed in Tokyo in the late sixties. We follow Eddie, a popular young transvestite as he travels from bar to bar, eventually ending up in a drug fueled dance party where a game of spin the bottle leads to an orgy. The following day we observe Eddie and his two friends as they go shopping for womens clothing in a Tokyo shopping mall. As Funeral Parade of Roses progresses, the professional rivalry between Eddie, who dresses as a modern woman and his rival, a drag queen who prefers to dress as a traditional geisha, escalates as they vie for the attentions of cabaret manager Gonda. Funeral Parade of Roses is often cited as a major inspiration for Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange
