So last week I watched the Samurai Trilogy by Hiroshi Inaagaki and I thought I might put a little review of it up here. But as I kept thinking about it, I realized I have no idea what to write other than plot synopsis. I loved the trilogy. It starred Toshiro Mifune who brilliantly plays the legendary seventeenth-century samurai Musashi Miyamoto. According to Criterion, this trilogy is the Japanese Gone with the Wind (which seems like a poor analogy to me, but whatever). Anyway, I recommend this to all. Its full of love and anger and war and great sword fighting. There are a few plot holes and lots of women crumpling to the ground and crying, but it is still a great thing to watch. So that is my crappy take on a cinematic classic.
