Over the next few years, 'A Better Tomorrow II,' 'A Bullet in the Head' and, especially, 'The Killer' only confirmed his talent. For the first time, 'A Better Tomorrow' has been given an excellent US DVD release by, no surprise, Anchor Bay. This busy company has developed a strong reputation for high-quality releases of foreign thrillers, horror movies, the movies of cult directors and so forth.

title: Yojimbo function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Criterion -- The Classic Collection MPAA rating: Unrated starring: Toshiro Mifune, Eijiro Tono, Kamatari Fujiwara, Takashi Shimura, Sizaburo Kawazu, Isuzu Yamada, Tatsuya Nakadai release year: 1961 film rating: Five stars A/V rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren No director made more outstanding films than Akira Kurosawa -- nobody, not John Ford, not Alfred Hitchcock. Unfortunately, he's known in the US more by his reputation than from many of his movies having been seen here. The major titles, "Rashomon," "The Seven Samurai," maybe one more, have been widely shown here and are available on video.

He and collaborators Ryuzo Kikushima and Hideo Oguni had written a script prior to "Yojimbo" intended for another director. It was rewritten to fit Toshiro Mifune's character of Sanjuro, and the resulting film was an even bigger hit in Japan than "Yojimbo," though it is somewhat less well-known elsewhere than its predecessor.
