Zatoichi

This 1989 samurai film (the 26th and final Zatoichi film) was written and directed by long-time series star Shintaro Katsu. Sort of a big budget revisionist version of the popular series, the film has blind masseur/gambler/swordsman Ichi battling the usual corrupt officials and nasty gangsters. Fans of sword-swinging cinema should consider this one a must and a fine appetite-sharpener for Takeshi Kitano's brand new Zatoichi film which will (hopefully) hit American theaters this year. 116 minutes
