Seven Samurai

Seven Samurai ★★★★

I'm giving the 4 because it is easy to appreciate the technical mastery at hand with this film, and I really enjoyed the last act. I just can't go any higher than that right now. I was never unimpressed at all, but I really struggled to love this one. It's craft is incredible and the story and performances are both great, but I just found finally watching it more tedious than enjoyable, largely thanks to the runtime. I'm sure I'll watch this again down the road, if I can in a theatre that would be awesome, but I just found myself a bit disappointed despite enjoying the film
