The Hidden Fortress
"What you make of another's kindess is up to you." Heavily influenced by the Ford westerns Kurosawa admired so much.There is a sense of adventure around every turn of this movie -a sense of wonder typically reserved for novels. Archetypal set designs and characters. At the heart of each man is a predicament between greed and responsibility to their own. All for gold: the world may not be just, but it is fair.
