The Failure of Bushido

“ An old man kneels to pray on the mountaintop trail of his pilgrimage. He pleads to Buddha for death so that he will no longer be a burden to his granddaughter. Appearing from a pure white cloud, seeming to step out of the sky itself, Ryunosuke arrives, dressed in pure black, ready to carry out the old man's wish. Is he just a wandering samurai? Is he the angel of death? Or is he, as the original title “Dai-bosatsu tôge” (The Great Bodhisattva Pass) might suggest, a “Danava”: a dark Asura from Buddhist mythology. This question is never answered directly and The Sword of Doom is a much better film for it. The mystery of Ryunosuke is far more compelling than any answer to his origin and purpose could possibly be.

From the opening scenes it's established that, mortal or no” read more

My movie year 2016 (666 movies items)

"30.11. (DVD) Hei hellurei, minultapa löytyy yli 150 katsomatonta elokuvaa hyllystäni. Voisi alkaa hiljalleen perkaamaan tätäkin kasaa pienemmäksi. Parantelin jonkinlaista flunssaisen epätervettä oloani tuijottamalla samurai-filmiä puolenpäivän aikaan sohvalta käsin. Puolivälissä myös laitoin dvd:n hetkeksi paussille ja otin pienet tirsat. Keskittyminen olisi voinut siis olla parempaakin. Se joka miekkaan tarttuu, se miekkaan hukkuu. Mies menettää väkivallan tielle kaiken perh"

"Se joka miekkaan tarttuu, se miekkaan hukkuu. Mies menettää väkivallan tielle kaiken perhettään ja lopulta mielenterveyttään myöten. Hänen lahtaamiensa ihmisten haamujen piinaavat kuiskinnat käynnistävät verilöylyn, jossa jätkä jatkaa henkihieverissäkin riehumista katanoineen mekaanisesti kuin kone: ainoaa asiaa, johon hän elämässään kykenee. Vaikka katsoja tajuaakin kaverin saaneen sen verran osumaa osakseen, etteivät tämän henkiinjäämisen mahdollisuudet voi kovin kork"
