As much as I hate that Japanese director Takashi Miike has moved away from his exploitative roots, the immensely talented filmmaker’s recent output has been nothing short of fantastic. From the looks of the latest trailer for Miike’s remake of Masaki Kobayashi’s 1962 samurai classic, the man’s eye for violent beauty has only gotten stronger over the years. Don’t believe me? Take a peek at the embedded trailer below, which is nothing short of brilliant. And while the film received mixed reviews when it screened at Cannes this year, I’m still quite anxious to get my grubby little hands on a copy of the film. I’ll even overlook the 3D. This time.
“Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai” opens in Japan later this year.
