YES. Kurosawa is amazing.
I love this scene.
I hate all those douchebags who downgrade this movie because its a remake of some pvt eye movie from the 30s.
Most of Kurosawa's movies are drawn heavily from one source or another (sometimes several) but they're never really "remakes". The stuff based on Kurosawa's work? Yeah, those are remakes.
If I recall the movie is called the Glass Key and there's only one real scene which Kurosawa emulated from it. (Where the hero is beaten up and has to hide)
I liked the big scene in Sanjuro, where he kills like twenty guys in three minutes. But this is totally badass, too.
PS: Did you know this movie won Best Use of a Butcher Knife in a Samurai Movie? From me?
Gotta love the classic SPLTCH and GLTCH sword sound effects. Kurosawa + Mifune =
That guy that ran off screaming like a girl is SO not invited to the Katana Goon Christmas party.
That was most impressive. I must watch this movie.
