    “...Not only a great film in its own right, but the source of a genre that would flow through the rest of the century…. It could be argued that this greatest of filmmakers gave employment to action heroes for the next 50 years.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times (Aug 19, 2001)

    “Widely acknowledged as one of Kurosawa’s, and indeed Japan’s and world cinema’s, greatest films… A film of immense emotional impact and one that as Eisenstein would have it, ‘thinks in images’ (and sounds I would add), its pleasures seem inexhaustible.” —Patrick Crogan, Senses of Cinema

    “SEVEN SAMURAI…was one of the first Japanese films many viewers had ever seen. It introduced a culture that was foreign yet intriguing, and accessible to audiences weaned on Hollywood westerns.” —Anne Billson, BBC
