August 26 ~ Zatoichi (2003)
116 min., 35mm
Takeshi Kitano, Director
"Zatoichi is not a continuation of the original series, but a transformation ." -- Roger Ebert
Writer-director-star, Takeshi Kitano boldly re-imagines the classic Zatoichi character, a blind masseur with a red cane who relies on his remaining almost-superhuman sense to lay waste to his enemies. Japanese with English subtitles.
