Blade of the Immortal

Cult Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike (Dead or Alive, Visitor Q, Audition, Ichi the Killer, One Missed Call, Gozu, Zebraman, 13 Assassins) offers up his 100th(!) film, an adaptation of Hiroaki Samura's popular manga series of the same name. Manji (Takuya Kimura) is a highly skilled samurai, cursed with immortality after a legendary battle. Unable to die—even when chopped into bloody chunks—our anti-hero wanders the country, battling evil and hoping to one day regain his mortal soul. Of course, being a Miike film, this is one outrageous bloodbath after another. 140 minutes R.
