Toshiro Mifune swaggers and snarls to brilliant comic effect in Akria Kurosawa's tightly paced, beautifully composed Sanjuro. In this sly companion piece to Yojimbo, jaded samurai Sanjuro helps an idealistic group of young warriors weed out their clan's evil influences, and in the process turns their image of a "proper" samurai on its ear. Less brazen in tone than its predecessor but equally entertaining, this classic character's return is a masterpiece in its own right. Criterion is proud to present this Kurosawa favorite in a new, anamorphic high-definition transfer.
