Yojimbo

110 min. minutes | Rated NR

Don't just watch it because this is the movie that Sergio Leone flat-out ripped off to make A Fistful of Dollars, and don't just watch it because it's an Akira Kurosawa film and you're supposed to watch Kurosawa so you can become a more sophisticated, learned, well-rounded aficionado or some shit like that. Watch Yojimbo because it's just really, really fucking good, and it's also one of the best things Toshiro Mifune ever did, so good that within about five minutes of his appearing onscreen it becomes very apparent Clint Eastwood's whole acting career is literally a pale, watered down and stepped-on pantomime of Mifune's.
