A Fistful of Dollars

A Fistful of Dollars ★★★★★

Story has it that this movie was so close to ripping off Yojimbo that Akira Kurosawa sued the production company.  Granted, If I were to list all the movies based on or ripped off of Kurosawa, we’d be here all day, from Fistful to Magnificent Seven to Star Wars, hell, even A Bug’s Life.  But despite this, Fistful stands nearly alone as a shining example of the Spaghetti Western, equaled by its fellow members of the Man With No Name Trilogy.
