Yôjinbô

Akira Kurosawa Japan, 1961

Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Yojimbo

Toshiro Mifune's vigilante-cum-shitstirrer wanders into town to clean it up and inspire a new generation of film makers along the way. Great characters, superb camerawork and a ripping yarn which rides along at a cracking speed, this is a perfect primer to Kurosawa's world.
