 To tie this movie into this week’s discussion questions, how is the warrior hero and his setting represented in Yojimbo, and what could the director, Akira Kurosawa, be trying to say with that portrayal?

Keep questions like this in mind for your film analyses – these are the types of things I want you to keep in mind when watching the films for them.
