Shichi nin no samurai



Made in 1954, Seven Samurai (though 3.5 hours long), is well worth watching. A cult movie, now I can say I have seen it. If anyone is interested, I bought it for the bargain price of 1400 yen.

Sorry not cult. I meant what you said.

Ace film, watched it on my course at uni and its one of the few i still enjoy after all the dissecting! If it was a cult film, it would have to have a weird trippy bit like when they go through the tunnel in Charlie and the Choc factory...that would be cool! ~_^
