    ''What's the use of worrying about your beard when your head's about to be taken?''A poor village under attack by bandits recruit seven unemployed samurai to help them defend against the foes Takashi Shimura Kambei ShimadaToshirô Mifune KikuchiyoA review of the film and storyAkira Kurosawa had recently and very uickly become one of my all time favourite directors I had only seen four of his films and given each and every one of them my highest rating and approval His greatest and undoubtedly his most popular film was in 1954 epic Shichinin no samurai The top selling movie out of Japan for the year and won the Japanese Academy Award for Best Picture Present day it is ranked one of the greatest motion pictures ever and it rightfully holds this honour stillThis is a spectacular story; as well as film Full of wonderful characters envisioned scenery and great performances all around; it is Kurosawa's fantastic story about a poor farming village in 16th century Japan being consistently placed under attack by marauding bandits Facing starvation if the bandits raid them again the peasants fearfully and reluctantly turn to seven unemployed samurai to defend themselvesThere is no weak foundation to Seven Samurai One of its greatest aspects is its characters Every single one of them farmer or samurai is given tremendous development making them all memorable This is one of those films where if a character is eliminated you suddenly find yourself missing their presence on the film; because you got to know them so well I will not name him but there was one ill fated character in the film when after he died I felt kind of cheerless because I had come to respect him as a human being instead of an actor performing in front of a camera and reading out scripted dialogue If you were to ask me which character was my favorite I would be tied between two of them The characters played by Takashi Shimura and Toshiro Mifune two of the finest Japanese actors who ever breathed airAnother thing I admire in Shichinin no samurai is the feeling of authenticity The feeling that it all scenes could really have occurred There are very few moments where the unbelievable happens as most action movies tend to drift towards One thing I admired was the antagonists of the film the bandits Unlike most Hollywood movies where the bad guys have names and are introduced as characters to make them effective the bandits in Seven Samurai all have no names We only know them as the bandits and that is appropriate because that's all the main characters know them as too Just marauding murdering bandits who must be defeated as soon as possibleKurosawa was undoubtedly one of the most influential directors of all time and that is clear in this film Many of the transitions and techniues that motion pictures today seem to follow on a conventional level were inspired by this film slow motion a fade wipe between scenes like what you see in the Star Wars movies; using the weather to affect emotion and atmosphere a team forming to take on a larger enemy the list goes on The movie was so influential that it was remade in the United States as The Magnificent Seven1960 Not as good as its original source; not by a long shot; but considerably effective and noteworthyIn regards to the film's soundtrack it's a success The music was composed by Fumio Hayasaka and it's simply wonderous We seldom hear any of it; when we do its an efficacious presence of impact The opening score is very effective and the music that plays when the farmers are searching for samurai in the town remains one of my favourite soundtrack pieces today; it penetrates your soulThere is one thing in the film that might ward off some viewers It is long At over three and a half hours in length some people will be cautious before sitting down to view it and some will lose their patience; but to those who can sit down and enjoy a film no matter how long it lasts it will be realized as fast moving storytelling Even the long takes and the slow pacing seems surrealist fast because it is so well written and so masterfully directed by KurosawaAkiro Kurosawa gives us one of the greatest masterpieces of all time ''The farmers have won We have lost''

    没想到美国左翼知识分子能够将一整部电影分析得这么到位,从各个角度和背景,并且没有过度沉迷于分析人云亦云的时代背景中,对我做评论非常有启发。I didn't expect that the American left wing intellectual could analyze a movie really precisely from all kinds of perspectives and backdrops as not indulging into analyzing the era's background repeatedly and overly It's very inspiring to my doing critic
