Movie of the Week: Sanjuro (1962)

Akira Kurosawa directs Toshirô Mifune, Tatsuya Nakadai and Keiju Kobayashi in this sequel to the Japanese samurai classic, Yojimbo.

Not quite as action packed or as epic as the first one but Mifune gets more character shading and plenty of comedy support. The movie ends on a satisfying geyser of blood.
