FY16 Annual Report
ICE-Vision: Yojimbo (Kurosawa, 1961)
Thursday, April 28 at 6:30 PM
Lamar Dodd School of Art, Room S150
Toshiro Mifune portrays a Samurai who finds himself in the middle of a feud-torn Japanese village. Neither side is particularly honorable, but Mifune is hungry and impoverished, so he agrees to work as bodyguard (or Yojimbo) for a silk merchant (Kamatari Fujiwara) against a sake merchant (Takashi Shimura). Yojimbo was the prototype for the Clint Eastwood “Man with No Name” picture A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS (1964). The difference is that Fistful relies on Eastwood for its success, whereas Yojimbo scores on every creative level, from director Akira Kurosawa to cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa to Mifune’s classic lead performance.
