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.

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