This is a well-weaved documentary about Toshiro Mifune a legendary actor and his works. The trailer shows the collection of characters which led a connected influence on American cinema. Especially two highlighted topics are alcohol and cars. The film starts with a brief history of Japanese cinema and then few masterpieces of Kurosawa are assembled and presented but everything is very shallow and it is difficult to grasp the soul of what is being observed. It is known that Toshiro Mifune was one of the great actors of Japanese cinema who added another dimension to the cinema after World War 2. He worked with Akira Kurosawa to rebuilt and revive the Japanese cinema. He even worked offshores in grand Prix, Hell in the pacific and all that is shown in the documentary. A few dimensions of personal life including married life and much more are also there but everything seems to be incomplete and shallow.
