I remember I caught Rashomon on AMC early one morning. That was a great movie. I really need to see more Kurosawa movies. I've only seen that and Seven Samurai and only one time each.

Ahhh Good Times...

Do watch Yojimbo! I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

S/o in this forum wrote s/he thinks JEH's Rorschach was inspired by Clint Eastwood. If this should be true we have a link from WATCHMEN to Yojimbo, coz Eastwood based his No Name on Mifune's Sanjuro.
And if you like badass, Sanjuro defines it.


And thanks for the link, Dude. A short but interesting read.
Though it hasn't much to with Rashômon, coz the point of the film is that different people tell different versions of a story, not just different aspects (eg, the bandit claims to have killed the Samurai, whereas the Samurai claims to have killed himself).
