[edit] Information

"Seven Samurai: Origins and Influences" is a new retrospective documentary that focuses on samurai traditions and the films that influenced Kurosawa's epic. Plenty of sketches and finished artwork are on display, as well as frequent references to John Ford (The Searchers, The Grapes of Wrath), Kurosawa's favorite American director. The near hour long extra is filmed in a widescreen aspect ratio (Anamorphic as well) and features accounts from various scholars, both English and Japanese speaking, who cover the "samurai" genre before Seven Samurai and finally aspects of the movie itself. The feature is a little slow at the start, but really pays off as it progresse
