Seven Samurai - a Japanese film (1954). It is SO amazing! If you like foreign dramatic films and don't mind black and white, subtitles or sitting 3 hours and 45 minutes, then you will LOVE this movie! The Magnificent Seven was based on this film.
Seven Samurai, what can I say. I believe this is one of the best movies ever made. I am a big fan of foreign films and Kurosawa is at the top of my list of best directors, along with Fellini, Truffaut, Ang Lee and few others. From this list, I think Kurosawa has made more impact on me and Seven Samurai is his most well known movie. His strength is telling the story and this movie does that at the highest level. This movie spun The Magnificent Seven, a western. A must see classic.
