The dynamic duo of director Akira Kurosawa and star Toshiro Mifune make their special magic in this exciting story of a samurai-for-hire who hires himself out to two warring factions with the aim of destroying both. A practical blueprint for the modern action film. In 35mm.

REVIEWS

Far from being just another vehicle for Mifune, this belongs in that select group of films noirs which are also comedies.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out

A textbook example of the perfect crowd-pleaser, Kurosawa’s tale is sociopolitical wish fulfillment via archetypal samurai drama, albeit with a twist or three.” – Rob Humanick, Slant Magazine
