What I mean, I guess, is which of his movies are essential, which are commonly revered masterpieces ?

You need to see Akahige, it's one of his best and you get to watch the last film that Kurosawa and Mifune made together.

Not to mention Shimura. People never mention Shimura.

Shimura's role in Red Beard is pretty small, though.

Since it was Antares and oldkid talking about it I thought it must be Red Beard. Great film. Mifune Prime. The older grumpier version. I mean that's not lifelike or anything. I'm in ma prime.

Did you just watch one of his? I don't think I have ever seen you review him.

Not sure what your situation is, other than you can probably just skip the rest?
