Yojimbo by Akira Kurosawa

Yojimbo by Akira Kurosawa

If you don’t yet know the work of Japanese director Akira Kurosawa, you should. His films have influenced many American directors, including George Lucas. Yojimbo ($24) is an excellent film in its own right, a story of a drifting samurai for hire, but also serves as an excellent introduction to Kurosawa’s style. Black and White, English subtitles, it just doen’t matter — this one’s a classic.
