Toshiro Mifune turns 100

Recommended Posts

Criterion is celebrating Toshiro Mifune's 100th birthday this year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxVEJj1Fvec


I don't have the Criterion Channel, but I was lucky to inherit the 25 film Akira Kurosawa Criterion box set a few years back, so I've been going through some of the films that I've never seen (most of the them).  I initially tried Yojimbo, which I didn't love, but then watched Stray Dogs which was incredible, and I'm now watching High and Low. 


What Toshiro Mifune/Akira Kurosawa films have you seen?  Which are your favorites?

I’ve seen all his Kurosawa flicks, and Roshomon remains my favorite of their work together. Mifune is really masterful playing the same character in so many ways. An absolute delight.
