So much has already been said about this film, which is without doubt one of the best films of all time. The more I see it the more I look at the details, and the more I look at the details the more impressed I am with them.
Don't be discouraged by the length of the film which is almost four hours. I've seen 80 minute films that seemed to last for days, and with Seven Samurai you don't see the time pass.
Yes, this film is a masterpiece, an accessible and entertaining one.
