Very good. I prefer Sanjuro
It’s a fun and funny crime/spy-ish movie that’s trying to do something else but I’m not entirely sure what. There’s a self-reflexive thing going on that I don’t quite know how to reconcile.
Mostly, I was just a little bit lost. This isn’t a negative review. I liked the movie a good deal, I just don’t really know what to make of it. I don’t know much about Romania and I think.... the only Romanian new wave films I’ve seen…
This kicked ass. Masterpiece. One of the best endings in a movie ever. Toshiro Mifune crushes ass.
I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve only seen three other Kurosawa. He’s a major blindspot for me, as are a few other majors like Ozu, Bergman, and Fellini, all whom I’ve seen a 2-3 but don’t feel adequately versed in their filmography.
The three Kurosawa I’ve seen (Rashoman, Drunken Angel, and Throne of Blood) are all incredible and I love them a lot,…
