AroView: Actor-director-cult hero Takeshi Kitano stylishly revives a hero of well-known Japanese mythology and scores his most broadly appealing and internationally successful film to date.

As the eponymous blind swordsman, Takeshi delights in the role he was destined to play, acting as the great moral leveller as he unassumingly slices and dices his way through the corrupt underbelly of feudal Japan. Fervently sticks to blood-spurting genre tradition, but executed with the master’s deft precision and unwaveringly cool, leaves the dir. of a certain “Kill Bill” to eat his heart out.
