In a flea bitten, dusty Japanese town, a ronin (unemployed samurai) finds himself in the middle of a feud between two warring mafia's. On one side of town a local silk merchant is building a small army, while on the other, a sake merchant is hiring anybody who can carry a sword. The two merchants engage in a bidding war to employ the services of the itinerant samurai, but he has his own plans. Disgusted by both sides, the samurai, (Mifune) instigates a war between the two factions and with great pleasure sits in the town's bell tower watching them cut each other to pieces. After freeing the daughter of a local villager from bondage, he leaves the town in search of further exploits. Yojimbo was the inspiration for several Sergio Leone films including the Clint Eastwood vehicle, A Fistful of Dollars which was made a few years later. Kurosawa portrays 19th century Japan as a society where corruption and calamity are so commonplace that the distinction between bandits and samurai have become blurred. Kurosawa was one of the few Japanese directors who was allowed to work with relative creative freedom, his early films were consistently commercially successful, as was the case with Yojimbo. Kurosawa's films along with his contemporaries Ozu, Mizoguchi, and Ichikawa raised Japanese cinema onto the world stage in the period immediately after World War II

After more than a decade of sober political dramas and social-minded periodpieces, the great Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi shifted gears dramatically for this rapturously stylized quartet of ghost stories. Featuring colorfully surreal sets and luminous cinematography, these haunting tales of demonic comeuppance and spiritual trials, adapted from writer Lafcadio Hearn's collections of Japanese folklore, are existentially frightening and meticulously crafted. In The black hair, a poor young samurai leaves his first wife to marry a rich woman. When he is unhappy in his second marriage, he returns to his first wife, who at first appears unchanged from when he last saw her. In The woman of the snow, a woodcutter is spared by a mysterious ghost-like woman in the snow, but must promise never to tell anyone what he has seen.
