Sanjuro (1962)



Reviews and Comments

Akira Kurosawa's sequel to Yojimbo is fantastic, a rare sequel that recaptures the spirit of the original with a brand new story. Toshiro Mifune's wandering samurai again happens upon corruption in feudal Japan, manipulates the situation until he's happy with the result, and moves on. Again, Kurosawa demonstrates his uncanny ability to create evocative worlds and characters for his breezy adventure stories.
