The Hidden Fortress

The Hidden Fortress ★★★★★

It's interesting that the biggest influence on the original Star Wars is so underrated, this is a definite masterpiece. This is a great mixture of action, comedy and drama. I love the characters, Tahei, Mataskisihi, Princess Yuki and General Makabe all have great purpose and deliver memorable performances. There is definitely something spiritual about it and we are reminded just how much of a God Kurosawa is time and time again.
