Employee Picks: Logan


Directed by
Akira Kurosawa

Yojimbo posterA nameless ronin, or samurai with no master (Toshirô Mifune), enters a small village in feudal Japan where two rival businessmen are struggling for control of the local gambling trade. Taking the name Sanjuro Kuwabatake, the ronin convinces both silk merchant Tazaemon (Kamatari Fujiwara) and sake merchant Tokuemon (Takashi Shimura) to hire him as a personal bodyguard, then artfully sets in motion a full-scale gang war between the two ambitious and unscrupulous men.

Logan’s Employee Pick catches Akira Kurosawa firing on all cylinders in this wry, action-packed samurai tale, later remade as A Fistful Of Dollars.
