Mifune was a fiery meteor setting the night sky ablaze among the static stars, the sheer presence of him on screen was enough to be captivated by. That coupled with the astonishing range that he possesed as a actor, whatever it was that he needed to express he did so with absolute conviction, and we were all mesmerized by it.
"He (Mifune) was like the ocean...The ocean is boundless...but, sometimes, very turbulent."
