Two Kurosawa masterworks nearly 20 years apart. Kagemusha would be the only one of the two to make it into my Top 50.

Both great, but I'll go with Yojimbo.

Kagemusha is far more epic, but it's how Yojimbo manages to entertain as good as any modern action, so many years after its release, that makes it the easy winner for me.

I love the color usage in Kagemusha, but I feel more tense watching Yojimbo.
