getting back into posting some smaller but ultimately more awesome stuff here, today we have the closing music to Akira Kurosawa’s 1980 samurai epic:



i find  that Kurosawa always had a knack for incredible closing shots that managed to sum up the theme of his films in a perfect blend of cinematic poetry, and even after a long break he didn’t lose that ability at all. On top of the visual spendour on display in this film’s final moments we are also treated to the best arrangement of the films mournful main theme.
