Seven Samurai (1956)

 Hey, there’s no bad language in this one!

Seven Samurai 3

With our 29th Next 100 Project podcast, we deal in honour and shame…and also 16th Century small-scale war. Akira Kurosawa’s best-known film stars polar opposites: calm Takashi Shimura and frenetic Toshiro Mifune. They and their fellow actors are surrounded by authentic period sets & costumes…and all that rain & mud. Get your subtitles-reading eyeglasses on, order up some Sparkplug Coffee, then focus on our opinions about the Seven!
