Mifune: The Last Samurai

  • Dir: Steven Okazaki

  • Japan, 2015, 80minmins, DCP

“A lot of people have tried to imitate Mifune, but nobody can,” Steven Spielberg said. Mifune Toshiro, the legendary Japanese star renowned for his iconic samurai roles, has cast a huge influence on film history. Oscar winner Steven Okazaki offers a thoughtful examination of his life, with rare archival footage and through his fascinating collaborations with virtuoso director Kurosawa Akira. Co-star actresses Tsukasa Yoko and Kagawa Kyoko offer vivid memories of working with the gifted actor. Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese pay their tribute, with Keanu Reeves as the narrator.
