Samurai Fiction

This jazzy Japanese smash is an old school samurai story done up right. Shot in glorious black and white, the film recalls the best of Akira Kurosawa's sword operas. Rapidly paced and often quite amusing, the film follows the adventures of a young warrior, the son of a feudal lord, who sets out to retrieve a precious sword stolen by a rogue samurai. This one was heavily referenced in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill: Volume One. In Japanese with English subtitles. 111 minutes
