YMMV / Sanjuro

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Listen and try not to feel happy.
  • Enforced Method Acting: The blood spurt at the end was going to be smaller and subtler but the nozzle malfunctioned and shot out a giant burst. The actor was legitimately hurt but still stayed in character and finished the shot. Kurosawa felt so bad he didn't ask for a retake which is shockingly rare for him.
  • What an Idiot: There's this one particular ugly samurai from the sidekicks that really didn't get what Sanjuro was doing.
    • Mutsuta's daughter calling loudly to her cousin when she discovered the camellias. Izaka calls her out on it.
