The Hidden Fortress

The Hidden Fortress ★★★★★

I love Kurosawa, but I particularly love Kurosawa when he's making a wacky road trip movie. I genuinely enjoy the journey of our characters and with the added comedy aspects I find it more palatable than a lot of this eras samurai flicks. Something about the cinematography makes these Japanese landscapes and forests seem almost like... another planet.
