samskivert: 座頭市 [Zatoichi] (3)

27 July 2004

This would be a fine samurai flick even if it didn’t include various absolutely brilliant Stomp meets Tap meets wadaiko scenes. I bore a reluctantance to see Takeshi Kitano’s earlier films, but it has evaporated in a whirling crowd of tap dancing villagers.
