Hmm.... to name a few...

Ran
Rashomon
Ikiru
Yojimbo
Red Beard
The Bad Sleep Well
Stray Dog
Throne of Blood
Sanjuro


I would mention Drunken Angel but it doesn't have an R1 release.

Thanks, and thanks Tuco-Harmonica too.

Also, my country is on the region 4 for DVDs, so maybe I can find that movie. And I have already seen Yojimbo. :)

BTW, Sanjuro is the sequel to Yojimbo, and I actually prefer it.

It's kinda a sequel...

Y'know, in the same way the Dollars trilogy are sequels.

Well, Sanjuro ("Thirtysomething") is the name the character uses in both films; also, he uses a vegetation-alias in both films (in Sanjuro its Tsubaki because there are a lot of camelias about).

yes, that's true. I just meant that the plots aren't actually related, like most sequels.

Actually, to be considered a sequel, only one of the following need be true:

a) characters in common with those in "prequel"
b) plot a continuation of story in "prequel"
c) both a and b

As titoli has pointed out, the Dollars films do not fulfill any of these three conditions, and so are not, strictly speaking, a trilogy. The main character in Sanjuro is the same character who appeared in Yojimbo, so the former is a sequel to the latter.

I know this has been discussed before, but my first impressions of this were good. I really liked the opening sequence, the way he just keeps itching himself and shrugging. Very interesting movie. Just curious, what was the role of the gun in Japan in 1860? It was obviously known about but was it looked down upon to use? The gun's appearance in this movie seemed to bring with it dishonor and trickery. Just curious about the Japanese view of it at the time.
