Talking about early Kurosawa and Mifune!
On this dialectically-enhanced episode of Oeuvre Busters, Liam and George discuss two films for the price of one: Sanshiro Sugata (1943), directed by Akira Kurosawa, and Snow Trail (1947), starring Toshiro Mifune. Topics discussed on this episode: alpha and beta males; Babar, the colonialist; the shit and the mire; middle-brow literature. Plus, my god, that sandal! So quintessentially Kurosawa.
Topics not discussed: anemones.
