More Japanese cinema, yesterday saw The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi
, another film featuring Tadanobu Asano
he plays a Ronin, he also stars in "Ichi the Killer" I'm going to see more of his films he's a wonderful actor. The Blind Swordsman,
is a bit overrated in my opinion. I really feel it's a piece hyped, and promoted because of the celebrity of Takeshi Kitano
. While the slower parts of the film has interesting pacing and cinematography - I was not drawn to the Zatoichi character and while bloody I missed more stylized swordfighting. Maybe I'm still reeling from Ichi.
