Look for the works of Akira Kurosawa including "Seven Samurai"; "Rashomon," which introduced Toshiro Mifune; and "Ikiru. " Hiroshi Inogaka released a trilogy of Samurai films that were highly acclaimed: "Musashi Miyamoto," "Duel at Ichijoji Temple," and "Duel at Ganryu Island"; his slightly later "Samurai Banners" starred Toshiro Mifune. Also try the original version of Ishiro Honda's "Gojiro," which became "Godzilla. "
