This week we’re reviewing Akira Kurosawa’s 1958 film The Hidden Fortress. We discuss the overall fun, adventurous tone of this movie, the casual sexism that has not aged well, and theorize about some of the things that directly influenced a little indie film called Star Wars.

Also, yet another COVID Corner. (Recorded May 25th, 2020.)
