Ethan M’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is Kurosawa's magnum opus, no doubt about it. Kurosawa has made other films that aren't just samurai movies (Ikuru and Dreams come to mind), but this is the epic Kurosawa masterwork that has inspired so many people. Every time I rewatch this, I have more of an appreciation for it. I end up finding something I didn't see before.
Please, if you're gonna watch any film from Kurosawa, watch Seven Samurai. I know it's long, but once the tension builds, it starts flying by.
