Movie Thoughts

Yojimbo, (1970) by Kurosawa is a great film, with enough to mull over for days beyond the fantastic architecture of a japanese town (implicitly compared to the shanty fascades of a western town). Why does the great samurai hero who loves to drink and fight not enjoy women? Does he not thank the old man at the end because now "they are even", although that phrase was used interchangeably throughout the movie to mean, "I screwed you and there's nothing you can do about it".

Hidden Fortress by Kurosawa is also a great film.
And Rashomon (better than Waiting For Godot).
