    Seven Samurai


    A difficult battle but after nearly three years Seven Samurai has unseated The Master as my favourite film. Seven Samurai is the perfect filmic narrative, the fact that a minor comedic character like Yohei for example, goes from pathetic old farmer to a hero of sorts is a testament to Kurosawa's commitment to crafting a plethora of fully realised characters in a truly lived-in world. The film is 3 and a half hours long and every time I check the runtime I'm surprised as to how much time has passed, it's so intense it's like having the entirety of an epic novel flash before your eyes.
