********** I'm not familiar with him. I checked him out on Netflix and they've got several movies by him. Yojimbo looked like the one that I think has been referred to as an adaptation of RED HARVEST. There was another called Ran. Can I get a decent understanding of the movies reading English subtitles?

Thanks, miker
