    A bit too plain and predictable to deserve the 5/5 I thought I may have given this. As my first Mizoguchi, I was expectedly pleased at the cinematography and acting but a little underwhelmed by the story.

    The film certainly picks up throughout the second half though, slightly shifting from the moralistic tale of greed and war to this bizarre ghost love story.

    Even though I was a microbe underwhelmed, there is still no doubting that this film is a masterpiece. It's just not quite as strange or surreal as I expected and prefer.

    For too long I thought that this wasn't perfect (I'm scared of bandwagons). But it's actually kinda perfect.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    just a fucking dude and a damsel riding round a cinema slashing demons with a samurai sword on a motorbike *loud hair metal*


    and then suddenly a helicopter falls thru the roof of the movie theatre, the propellors slicing demons, too


    escape thru hole in the roof / ride off into the moonlight with random family, armour and weaponry in tow

    credits and funky muzak

    *one of the most bizarre finales to any movie i've seen*
