    I watched The Quiet Man numerous times with my family as a kid. I didn’t watch The Searchers until I was older and becoming more of a cinephile who sought out the classics. Speaking of which, I’m sure Matt Walsh is familiar with Citizen Kane, a very famous old drama which doesn’t fit any “genre” boxes. I’m personally not that big a fan of Kane, and I know it’s usually praised for pioneering lots of filmmaking techniques, but Walsh is right that many of those techniques are standard now and thus don’t stand out as much to a modern audience.

    I think martial arts movies might be more associated with Hong Kong than Japan. Japan does samurai & yakuza films.
