Quote from: Veldemere on June 01, 2009, 09:50:45 amI Have seen yojimbo, didn't like it as much as the ones mentioned as I guess I like my Jideki-ki heroes to be a little more flawed, it is a fantastic film and even one where the remake was a quality film!I just love the narrative structure of Rashomon and how dark a mirror of the human condition it presents in an entertaining way. Throne of blood is there because of my weakness for Macbeth, probably my favourite telling of the story. That said, apart form Rhapsody in Autumn any Kurosawa film could make it into the top 5 at some point!
Quote from: Funkadelic Erik on June 01, 2009, 09:59:08 amThrone of Blood scared the holy crap out of the wife. I think it's due to the ghosts having more of a resonance for her.
Quote from: Veldemere on June 01, 2009, 10:11:22 amYes, it is difficult for the western viewer to fully understand the cultural significance of changing the witches to ghosts, a theme he revisits in Rashomon.
