I’m not dying yet. I have to kill quite a few men first. (film draft)

Given my lack of foreign films in this draft, I choose…

Yojimbo

Some may remember the film “Fistful of Dollars.” Well, this is the original, better version of that story. Perhaps if I hadn’t seen this first I’d think otherwise, but Fistful is unwatchable for me. I’m really struggling to provide a good write up of this; all I can say is I enjoyed this more than the celebrated “Seven Samurai,” and the sequel “Sanjuro” isn’t too bad either. If you can get past the black and white, the subtitles, and the slow moving plot, then I highly recommend this Kurosawa classic, and almost anything else the man has done.
