Good Morning, World

I don't usually post pictures with great big watermarks across them like that but I'm going to make an exception for that shot of legendary actor Toshirô Mifune, who was born 99 years ago today. That's right -- next year's his centenary! We should all plan on doing something! I really should do a deep dive into his films -- I've really only seen the big ones with Kurosawa and I'm sure there's much more to see from a man who worked a full fifty years in the biz. What's your favorite Mifune?

I am also woefully deficient in knowledge of his filmography. Everything I've seen him in so far has been very good but out of those I'd go with High and Low as my favorite. It doesn't rely on action as much as some of his other signature films with Kurosawa but it was fascinating and tense.
