Reached my next milestone on Japanese movies today - 80 (two pages on LC). Well, 78 and 2 honourable inclusions anyway. 


I haven't seen any. I really should check a few out.

Not sure what you'd be more into but Akira Kurosawa's work is always a good starting point.

I'd start with Yojimbo in particular, not just because it's my favorite movie, but it's a fantastic samurai action with a comedic element.

Yojimbo is a brilliant movie. Often underrated next to Seven Samurai, which is also very good but also very long and perhaps not the best intro movie to Japanese cinema.

If you prefer something in the crime/noir line, Kurosawa's Stray Dog and High and Low also come recommended. 

From other director's Harakiri is also excellent. As is The Human Condition trilogy. 

If you're open to anime, there's also some great titles available. Some of them definitely not for the kiddies.
