In my younger years, watching classic movies was something I shared far more often with my parents. Nothing surprised me more than the time my mom sat and watched all four hours of Seven Samurai with me and didn’t ask a single question…she just had to know that things would turn out alright for those villagers! I waited until I purchased the reissue of the Criterion edition before I recorded this episode on Kurosawa’s enduring classic.
