Rashomon (1951)

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Akira Kurosawa. Toshiro Mifune, Machiko Kyo, Masayuki Mori, Takashi Shimura.

Kurosawa's first huge international success is superlative study of truth and human nature; four people involved in a rape-murder tell varying accounts of what happened. The film's very title has become part of our language. Oscar winner as Best Foreign Film. Remade as THE OUTRAGE.

Sanjuro (1962)

DirAkira Kurosawa CastToshiro Mifune , Tatsuya Nakadai , Takashi Shimura .

 

Article: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/89022/Sanjuro/articles.html

"Stripping conventional notions of honor from his tale of a wandering samurai (Toshiro Mifune), who goes by the poetic alias of Sanjuro ("Thirty years old"), Kurosawa introduced to the international action genre the archetype of a scruffy but wily antihero who plays one side of a local struggle against the other to his own advantage."
