“A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, ‘You are mad; you are not like us.'” ― St. Anthony the Great
That was a good wake up. Thanks.
I liked this movie a lot when I first saw it. Was this the greatest Japanese sword fight ever? It's right up there for me, but it's also context driven. A samurai who must kill someone for spreading propaganda against his lord, but is thwarted by a blind ronin that is protecting this man, his wife, and his child. It's pretty intense.
The Samurai could show mercy but it had to be in his own terms.That's about all I'm picking up on one take.
That is incredibly intense. The sword fighting was so good it is hard to believe it was staged - very impressive acting and moving and choreography. How they managed to not actually chop up each other is even more impressive. Great enunciation by the actors, too, and now I feel like speaking Japanese. Hai!
