I'm guessing this greatly influenced Tarantino and that Batman movie


.. but I dont pretend to be a film scholar. Am I close?

OK, I'll play... why?

In style, plus vengeance. I know vengeance is a common theme nowadays. But vengeance of this graphic sort was novel in 1960.

Kurosawa influences many. With Tarantino ... I was thinking of the guy whistling from time to time and the whistling theme in Kill Bill 1. As far as Batman is concerned you will have to help me on that one. Which Bat movie and why?

The Bad Sleep Well is a great film, but I don't think it was all that influential. Could be wrong though.

'I don't make deals with someone pointing a gun at me.'
'A principle?'
'A Habit.'
