This is one of the most boring films I've ever seen, by one of the most overrated filmmakers the world has ever seen.
Where to start...
Toshiro Mifune gives one of the most over-exaggerative performances ever; to the point where he is grunting like a rambling, drunken Donkey Kong.
Every single character is the most self-aggrandising, obnoxious, abhorrent, self-centred person you've ever seen in your life.
This is such a bad film. It's a shame Kurosawa didn't live to see Nichols' "Take Shelter" which achieved what Kurosawa strived for, and a 100 times more.
This film basically consists of a boring family saying "I want my money, I want my money, how am I going to cope, it's all about me".
What a pile of nonsensical willy dribble.
