I want to be Toshiro Mifune (when he was alive). Or any character he played. The guy was simply phenomenal. Whether he played the insane Kikuchiyo in Seven Samurai or the fearsome Toranaga in Shogun, he always nailed his performance.
As you can see, I've gotten on a Kurosawa kick again. I watched Yojimbo for the first time and immediately got ahold of the sequel, Sanjuro. Subtle, dark humor in a twisted plot. I wish they still made movies like these.
