02/25: hidden fortress

I watched Akira Kurosawa’s movie Hidden Fortress tonight. I had been putting it off for a long time because this is the one people say Star Wars is “influenced” by. 

It’s an incredible movie. I bet when it came out in 1958, it made the other action movies seem kind of simplistic. Current action movies too.
