Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Sanada: Here I am worried about a total stranger's health.
Sometimes I have to admit I'm some kind of angel. 
Matsunaga: A dirty, stinking angel.
Sanada: Huh! Your filthy minds always imagine angels
come looking like dance hall girls, but they're like me.
Matsunaga: Shut up, pain in the ass.

Just two days ago I listed this movie as one of the 1948 movies I've never seen but would like to, and that categorization has not shifted in those two days. I still haven't seen it, and I still want to! But it's the ever-gorgeous Toshirô Mifune's birthday today -- he was born 101 years ago today, and died in 1997 -- so I figured being repetitive on this point was perfectly acceptable under the circumstances. The movie does stream on Criterion Channel so I really have zero excuses now. Get on it, you big dumb lug!
