Synopsis:
Nearly 20 years after his death, Toshiro Mifune remains a true giant of Japanese cinema. Rich with archive footage and personal reminiscences from family and friends, this Keanu Reeves - narrated documentary shines a light on both the man and the actor, from his childhood and military service to his early years in the film industry and the string of masterpieces made with legendary filmmaker Akira Kurosawa. Directed by Academy Award-winning director Steven Okazaki and featuring contributions from Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese, 'Mifune: The Last Samurai' reveals him as a formidable and mercurial talent, both onscreen and off, and an influence that still resonates through world cinema.
