I have to go with Seven Samurai. Beautifully shot and told story. Plus, it has seven samurais in it! Seven!

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

Dersu Uzala, Seven Samurai, Kagemusha (the last scene, post-battle is incredible! ...and the film gets ignored because of Ran) and High and Low.
Critical Culture: cinema, literature, history.

3. Rashomon
4. Ikiru
5. Throne of Blood
Had a slight weapons malfunction, but everything's perfectly alright now. We're fine, we're all fine, here, now, thank you. How are you?

Like in Ran, only the jester can reveal the truth. ;D

Seriously though, I'm gonna rewatch it again soon, but it has proven to be so very long and boring that I've never made it past the two hour mark without losing all patience with it.
