Courage in “Seven Samurai”, by Kurosawa In the film “Seven Samurai”, Akira Kurosawa the director portrays courage through the characters such as the samurais but and the peasants. The story is set in the Sengoku period, which meant that Japan was undergoing numerous civil wars, and bandits were raiding a starving small village where Kambei and the 6 other samurais decide to protect later on in the film. In this essay, I will discuss the ways in which Kurosawa shows courage firstly in Kambei and between the male and the female, secondly its link to Aristotle’s idea on courage, love (both romantically, and in the family), and thirdly its relevance in post war Japan. The main character Kambei Shimada is a ronin who rescues a hostage child from a thief in the village, gathers six more samurais in order to defend that village form being attacked by bandits. It is easy to consider that he is the most courageous person throughout the film.

The owners and banks know that the only way to keep them from rebelling is to stomp on them, separate them and ensure they are always hungry and without a home. Another rationale behind these groups’ actions is misunderstanding. The Okies are farming men from the Midwest who desire things that the banks and landowners deem worthless. In addition to this, the Okies are getting angry and desperate because their families are literally starving to death. If they get desperate enough and angry enough, they may stop at nothing to get what they want.

The villagers, starving and desperate, seek out help. They eventually are helped by a group of Ronin, masterless samurai, who come together to train the villagers and help them fend off their attackers. The critical success of the film has led the plot to become one of the most remade in the history of cinema (Desser), inspiring films such as Western classic The Magnificent Seven and even the animated A Bug’s Life.

In the second of the Mad Max series, Max comes across a group of post-apocalyptic villagers holding out against the threat of sociopathic scavengers.

Set in the Wild West, “Blazing Saddles” is an innate example of the recognizability of Brooks’s films as a former black railroad worker becomes sheriff of the small town of Rock Ridge. Throughout the film, Brooks challenges the ideology and serious issue of racism with comedy, more specifically satire. This thematic element of satire in the face of discrimination or otherwise is one critical motif in most Mel Brooks films. The black Sheriff, Bart stays vigilant and slowly earns the respect of the townspeople who once discriminated against him as he combats the railroad company he once worked for who wish to raze the town in order to build the railroad through the area. Whilst Mel Brooks most commonly recognized motif is his slapstick comedy, often times you can recognize one of his films by the satire undermining a serious issue or concept, in the case of “Blazing Saddles” this concept happened to be racism.
