BLOOD END

BLOOD END is one of the great unknown films from Japan’s golden era of the late 1960’s. Starring NAKADAI Tatsuya in one of his best roles, this is the story of the Mito Tengu Group who attempted to overthrow the Shogunate at the beginning of the Bakumatsu Period. Their political aspirations led to countless assassinations, as well as senseless killing of innocent people who got in their way. Sentaro (NAKADAI), a farmer who’s been severely beaten for his outspoken defiance of the government and the high taxes during a time of famine is befriended by one of the group’s leaders, KADA Gentaro (KATO Go) and joins up. This is the masterpiece of director YAMAMOTO Satsuo (who is best known for the first film in the NINJA, BAND OF ASSASSINS series) the erstwhile ‘Leftist’ director, who used his films to make his political points. Stunning fight choreography, and ultra-violence make this one of the bloodiest films of that era.  A film of powerful proportions, this is a rare classic!

THE SCANDALOUS ADVENTURES OF BURAIKAN (Buraikan)

Evil is the order of the day in this masterpiece by famed director SHINODA Masahiro. Starring NAKADAI Tatsuya, one of Japan’s greatest actors along with IWASHITA Shima (the director’s wife) and the always powerful TANBA Tetsuro, this is a tale set in old Japan with a heavy influence from the Kabuki theater story of Kochiyama Soshun, a ‘tea-master’ known as a lovable rogue who risks his life for profit, and to help the common man. This is a film not to be missed as director Shinoda has created a brilliant work of art with his unique vision.

One of the great masters of the cinema, GOSHA Hideo, got to remake one of his most highly regarded classics, in this made-for-TV movie.
The legendary One-Armed, One-Eyed Swordsman, Tange Sazen has long been a part of Japanese lore.
While the story has been told many times, it has never been done quite like this. GOSHA, who directed the most famous version THE SECRET OF THE URN has retold the classic using NAKADAI Tatsuya as the brilliant swordsman who has been betrayed and left for dead.
Featuring some of the finest actors in the samurai genre, including the powerful NATSUYAGI Isao, along with the lovely MATSUO Kayo.. Plenty of action, and a unique jazzy soundtrack make this great!

INN OF EVIL
(Inochi Bonifuro)
 



This is another masterpiece from filmmaker KOBAYASHI Masaki, noted director of HARA KIRI, KWAIDAN, and SAMURAI REBELLION. The Japanese title is actually translated as “We give our lives for nothing”, and is the true heart and soul of this story. Based on a novel by YAMAMOTO Shugoro, who also wrote the books upon which SANJURO, KILL, and AFTER THE RAIN, were based, it tells the tale of a group of thieves and murderers who find it within themselves to sacrifice their lives with no hope of personal gain. NAKADAI Tatsuya stars as Sada, an expert with knives, whose mysterious past comes to light as he leads a group of fugitives in their last-ditch battle to save their home, a dilapidated inn, which does not welcome strangers in its doors. KATSU Shintaro plays against type in a pivotal role as one of the only outsiders ever allowed to drink at the inn. Tension and suspense lead up to a conclusion like no other. A magnificent motion picture, and a true work of art.

Directed by: KOBAYASHI Masaki
Starring: NAKADAI Tatsuya, SATO Kei, SAKAI Wakako,
NAKAMURA Ganemon, KATSU Shintaro
