Lady Snowblood (1973) - The first 50 minutes or so are even better than I remembered -- and outside of some dated (but good) funky 70's music in a couple spots, that 50 minute stretch is almost perfection. It's the perfect exploitation movie, but then the plot gets a little goofy, and the climax didn't quite deliver the way I thought it did. I (wrongly) remembered something much better. But still, this is close to a Fistful of Dollars level of movie. Had the plot and climax been handled better, this would undoubtedly be a much more coherent and cohesive Kill Bill. It still sort of is in a way, but that restaurant scene in Kill Bill Vol 1 is so good. A


I definitely recommend the Criterion Snowblood set, but I don't know when I'll get around to watching the sequel again. It was solid but sort of forgettable from what I remember. It's too bad the cover art is so generic.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

You have piqued my interest. And there is a Criterion sale on now. Hmmmm . . . .

Shinsengumi (1969) - 7/10. Gang of assassins tries to maintain political correctness in Kyoto prior to the Meiji Restoration. Their leader, played by Toshiro Mifune, learns that principled killing leads to endless violence. Then he dies. Great chambara action, great arterial spurts (this is a color film), great body count. Another essential entry in the Death Cult: Japan canon.
