This is a very good SW IMO, it’s not a top 10 SW, but its close.
The film has some of the best cinematography for any SW and one of the best duel scene scores.
I think it's top ten material (It's on mine).
I enjoy how perverse all the characters are. There is not one redeeming feature in any of them. Even the victimized widow allows her enemy's daughter to be raped by her murdered husbands brothers. She even makes her enemies dig up her husbands corpse to parade him over to another cemetery.
I thought about buying the wooden box set myself.
But I might just stick with my Japanese copy which seems to have a better presentation.
