The Hidden Fortress
Dir. Akira Kurosawa (1958). Kurosawas most elaborate sword film between The Seven Samurai and Kagemusha enjoys a semi-underground reputation inspiring the original Star Wars. As the first Japanese film to use a Cinemascope-type format, its also one of Kurosawas graphically strongest works, reveling in spectacular wasted landscapes as well as choreographed action.
