Sometimes funny, sometimes haunting, always intense.

Yojimbo is one of the classics of the samurai genre, and it's status as one of the original 'westerns' is unrivaled. Featuring memorable characters, beautiful set pieces and the (as usual) amazing portrayal by Toshio Mifune as Sanjuro all rolls together to create one of the great classics of the mid-20th century.

Highly recommended - might be a little slow for some, and doesn't feature as much brawling and sword-fighting as I'd like, but it stands out as a huge inspiration for many budding filmmakers, both of today and yesteryear.
