Tribute to Toshiro Mifune

Here is a 9-minute series of clips of some of the greatest scenes from some of the greatest films of Japan's greatest actor, Toshiro Mifune [more posts about him here].

Featured are the films Sanjuro, Hidden Fortress, The Throne of Blood, Miyamoto Musashi, and the TV miniseries Shogun, among others.

The films' original soundtracks have been replaced by an atmospheric song used in the anime classic Akira.
