Harakiri

Directed by Masaki Kobayashi

1962

Harakiri is a Japanese language drama about a desperate ronin in the 17th century. The film’s elegant compositions and careful pacing mask its restless, thrashing core. With its breathlessly choreographed sword fights and close attention to emotion, Harakiri meets the expectations of its genre, while transcending its presumed limitations.

Must see.
