Seven (six) Samurai

I’m a little amazed it took me this long to get to a Kurosawa film on the whiteboard.  The man was a pillar of film and his masterpiece Seven Samurai has been mined and regurgitated by the Hollywood machine more times than I care to go into.  We’ve all seen films where a helpless village hires outsiders to come in and help them deal with oppressors.  It’s a classic tale that was made classic because of Kurosawa.  So, in a way, we have Kurosawa to thank for The Three Amigos.  Just let that sink in for a second.
