Janus Film Series: Yojimbo (1961)
The incomparable Toshiro Mifune stars in Akira Kurosawa’s visually stunning and darkly comic Yojimbo. To rid a terror-stricken village of corruption, wily masterless samurai Sanjuro turns a range war between two evil clans to his own advantage. Remade twice, by Sergio Leone and Walter Hill, this exhilarating genre-twister remains one of the most influential and entertaining films of all time.
We’ll be screening a film from the huge and excellent Janus Films catalog every Thursday evening. Catch a classic every week at the Tin Pan!
Thursday July 8, 7pm
