Jacob Gehman’s review published on Letterboxd:
Despite a massive 3 1/2 hour playtime, Seven Samurai is thoroughly interesting and engaging from the get-go. It is an epic film--one that involves passion, humor, honor, and a lot of kindness. It seems to pass by in the blink of an eye. I could have watched another hour and not gotten bored. Recommended, nay, ESSENTIAL viewing for anyone who considers themselves a fan of cinema.
