Yojimbo is just so good.

Another vote for Yojimbo

His work is all outstanding, in samurai movies and other settings.

Yojimbo or Sanjuro… tough call. I'll buck the trend. Sanjuro.

Yeah. Taiko drummers at festivals today wear Meiji period workers' garb because his performance in Rickshaw Man set the standard!

The first time I started watching Rickshaw Man, it suddenly occurred to me wait, Toshiro Mifune as the rickshaw man, I wonder if he will keep his pants on?!? Added a lot of fun suspense to the movie.

Seven Samurai

Wolfshanza, umm yeah, that does count as a Mifune samurai movie!

I should watch that again…

Samurai 2: Duel at Ichijoji Temple

Really an underrated trilogy.

Deucey Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2023 7:39 a.m. PST

Ran is the only one I saw

I really like Red Sun & have watched it several times. It was a clever idea to have Mifune come to California, team up with Bronson & have them battle Comanches.
