  1. I’ve seen many Kurosawa films – my favorite was Dream Warrior. 
    Until now, I’d never heard of Kobayashi.  I’ll have to look for him at the video rental store.

  2. Yeah, Ther, I think seppuku is ritual suicide. So the point of the quote is that it’s completely useless unless you put it to the use in the place that it was intended…?
