Undy a Hundy

Seven Samurai (1956)

Seven Samurai (1956) (97) For a film buff, reviewing Seven Samurai is like an inventor critiquing the wheel. Perhaps improvements in form will be made, perhaps some already have, but the formula for adventure set down here is so perfectly elegant and simple that few even strive to progress it. An admission: this isn’t my favorite Kurosawa film – it might not even be his best. What it is, though, can only be described as monumental. The setup, the character development, the gut-wrenching tension, and the unforgettable action climax add up to a film that’s as enjoyable as it is culturally significant.
