This is hands down, one of my favorites of all times, directed by one of my favorite film directors of all time, the legendary Akira Kurosawa. For an introduction, I'd advise anyone to watch Seven Samurai. Akira was admired by greats such as George Lucas, Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Steven Spielberg. If that isn't any indication of how influential and brilliant Akira was, then I don't know what is. This movie itself eventually inspired the classic spaghetti western Fistful of Dollars by Sergio Leone starring "Mr. Chair Man" himself, Clint Eastwood. Enjoy another piece of classic cinema!
