I'm a simple man. I see a Kurosawa movie, I upvote.

Look for a young Pat Morita, mr. Miyagi.

Anyone who is interested in Star Wars MUST watch this film!!

This film is basically Lucas' entire inspiration for his entire saga.

If you haven't watched Kurosawa, then you don't understand Star Wars.

Clint Eastwood did better ;-)

I guess Lucas used this movie to base Jedi on???

It's not a direct interpretation, it's an all-over inspiration for the original trilogy. Think characters' characterizations more than situations, for the most direct links.

It is probably the best of Kurosawa. His Shakespeare adaptions were ok but not as good as this one. Simple and to the point.

Technically, no Samurai exist in this movie. If a samurai becomes unbonded they become Ronin. Some even became Yakuza.
