Seven Samurai

Seven Samurai ★★★★½

Very impressive film that has aged incredibly well. I can only imagine how epic this must’ve been when it was first released. It’s visually beautiful and it’s made me excited to dive into the filmography of Akira Kurosawa. It’s also a lot more humorous then I expected and filled with interesting characters. My only real gripe with the film is that the first hour or so is spent introducing all of the characters. This made it a little slow to begin with and I was worried that it would maintain that pace but the pacing does vastly improve and it certainly makes up for it. The closing shot is just perfect.
