Forget The Last Samurai! Here’s the hard, brutal world of real samurai!
Leading the New Wave in samurai cinema in the 1960s, Kudo Eiichi masterfully weaves together multiple tragedies sparked by political intrigue, culminating in a tour de force of mass action and anarchic violence. A ferocious and riveting condemnation of the feudal samurai state.

Directed by Eichi Kudo (1964, 35mm, English Subtitles)
