Mifune: The Last Samurai
Kyoko Kagawa, Tadao Sato, Sadao Nakajima, Steven Spielberg,
Academy Award–winning Bay Area filmmaker Steven Okazaki pays tribute to the life and talents of one of the greatest actors of all time in this supremely entertaining documentary. First presenting a loose history of the samurai film, Mifune soon dives into the personal history and public genius of the influential, ferociously charismatic actor, from humble beginnings in Manchuria to raw talent and, eventually, global superstar and sex symbol. Narrated by Keanu Reeves and capturing tributes from a roll-call of Japanese and American movie talent including Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and Koji Yakusho, Mifune showcases the man, the actor, and the legacy.
