    Yep this is a poll for the Kurosawa fans out there. I've got 2 friends that also love Kurosawa films however each of us has a different favorite actor.
    Which is your favorite Kurosawa actor?
    Tatsuya Nakadai - Ran, Kagemusha, Yojimbo, Sanjuro, Heaven & Hell, etc.
    Takashi Shimura - Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Ikiru, Yojimbo, etc.
    Toshiro Mifune - Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Throne of Blood, Yojimbo, Sanjuro, Hidden Fortress, Heaven & Hell, Red Beard, etc.
    I think all 3 are fantastic actors but my absolute favorite is Mifune.
    What say you?

    They're all marvelous and quite different. I prefer the subtlety of Takashi Shimura.

    Toshiro Mifune
    - The only one I know, and I love his over-the-top antics. If he aint' screamin' and yellin', it ain't Toshiro Mifune. [​IMG]

    Takashi Shimura. I'll never forget his performance in Ikiru.

    Shimura - Ikiru is my favorite Kurosawa film and close to my favorite film period.

    My answer may change once I see Ikiru, but Toshiro Mifune is a god among men.
