Seven Samurai

Seven Samurai ★★★★★

So many films have aspired to be this and failed. Even more films have tried to be this without even realizing that this is what they're trying to be.

I'm happy that I watched a few of his other films as a way of working up to this masterpiece. Yes, it stands triumphantly on its own, but having seen some of his other work, it shines brightly as his masterpiece.
