Dir. Akira Kurosawa (1954). Rich in detail, vivid in characterization, leisurely in exposition, Kurosawas epic is a movie to immerse yourself in like a 19th Century novel. Its also stolen by Toshiro Mifune, who responds to Kurosawas indulgence by splaying himself across the screenstrutting, crowing, capering, crouching, scratching, and cackling with lupine ferocity.
