Yojimbo by Akira Kurosawa (Japan, 1961, 110 min.). The incomparable Toshiro Mifune stars in Akira Kurosawa’s visually stunning and darkly comic Yojimbo. To rid a terror-stricken village of corruption, wily masterless samurai Sanjuro turns a range war between two evil clans to his own advantage. Enjoy the inspiration for Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars and Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo comic series in one of the most influential and entertaining films of all time.
This event is part of Samurai Saturdays.
