Lent: Part 29

Seven Samurai (七人の侍, 1954) – With a running time of 207 minutes, that averages to nearly half an hour per samurai, which seems like a lot. But really, for such a long movie, it doesn’t feel wasteful, or long for the sake of being epic, as other directors might do (you know who you are, Peter Jackson). Even the stupid love story that nobody cares about doesn’t drag the movie down.
