How Kurosawa Inspired Star Wars, and Why Movie History Is Awesome

HOLY SHIT this is an awesome video. It demonstrates how the movies of Akira Kurosawa (whom I regard as the greatest director who ever lived) especially Seven Samurai (which I consider the greatest film of all time) and Hidden Fortress inspired the Star Wars franchise, and also a very short history of American and Japanese cinema and in the historical to boot. It’s history and cinema and samurai and space all rolled into eight minutes of pure awesomeness. Watch it!
