A general (Toshiro Mifune) guards his defeated clan’s princess in a journey across enemy territory, accompanied by two bickering, bumbling peasants. If the plot of director Akira Kurosawa’s rollicking and exhilarating 16th-century Japanese swordplay adventure seems familiar, it may be because it’s not only one of George Lucas’s favorite films, but one he cites as a primary influence on Star Wars. In Japanese with English subtitles.
