If Kagemusha isn’t as daring as Akira Kurosawa’s other samurai epics, like Seven Samurai or Throne of Blood, then it is still a pleasurable jewel of a late master throwing around his considerable artistry and craft. The troubled birth and production doesn’t show (much), and it is an immensely pleasurable experience throughout. It simmers in its weightiness and epic scope, and Kurosawa still ... read more

"6.4 Erinomainen teos jälleen Kurosawalta. Tarina kahden klaanin taistelusta Sengoku-kaudella, sekä huijarista, kuka omaksuu maineikkaan sotalordi Shingenin identiteetin tämän kuoltua. Ehdottomasti Tatsuya Nakadain uran kohokohta tämän näytellessä sekä maineikaista sotasankaria, että tämän pelkurimaista, vaikkakin hyväntahtoista kaksoisolentoa. Osittain tässä toistui samoja elementtejä, mitä Ran'ssa, mutta paljon on eroavaisuuksiakin. Kurosawan elokuvien loisto ei katoa lainkaan"

"18.11. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Akira Kurosawa Kurosawa was amazing with colours (too) and Tatsuya Nakadai is always awesome, but this film is way too long. Also kind of lost track of who is who and what their motives are at some point but that's more a problem of my stupidity. "

Kagemusha

“If Kagemusha isn’t as daring as Akira Kurosawa’s other samurai epics, like Seven Samurai or Throne of Blood, then it is still a pleasurable jewel of a late master throwing around his considerable artistry and craft. The troubled birth and production doesn’t show (much), and it is an immensely pleasurable experience throughout. It simmers in its weightiness and epic scope, and Kurosawa still manages to pull it off with grace, beauty, and a deft touch that numerous imitators have tried and failed to achieve.   The title refers to a common thief who bears a striking resemblance to a warlord, and he effectively becomes his “shadow warrior,” what kagemusha translates to. This shadow warrior is something a spectral entity, more of an emotional cipher than a fully-realized character” read more

"19.7. PC I have no idea how this movie opens up to those who have no relative knowledge of the sengoku jidai period and what was going on in general between the clans. Most likely poorly, not that they wouldn't be able to enjoy the movie nonetheless. For which I highly recommend playing Sengoku Rance first with its highly caricatured historical characters or Shogun 2 Total War to grasp some of the basics down if you're interested in the Warring States period."

"First viewing - July 17th Since I had nothing going on on this Sunday afternoon it seemed like a good time to finally watch Kagemusha given its almost three hour run-time. Surprisingly it hooked me in from the start, and got me invested in the characters. Engaging the audience with these personalities is crucial given how much of the film is dialogue-driven. If you thought you were getting yourself into an action-packed war film, you've got another think coming. I thought the story was well-don"
