    Zatôichi the Outlaw 1967

    While it doesn't veer from the basic plotline the previous films have followed, the 16th entry in the Zatoichi series feels surprisingly revitalised and fresh. Ramping up the violence and throwing a more political agenda into the mix, it's a distillation of everything great about the series while simultaneously giving it a shove forward.

    Feels more like an extended episode than a feature film until they throw some of the budget up on screen towards the end. Regardless though, I'll always love anything involving these guys - and Mr Lahey is probably at his best in this.

    ★★½ Watched 07 Jan, 2013

    I'd braced myself for the worst before watching this, so was pleasantly surprised when it wasn't as atrocious as I'd feared. Far from Argento's best work, and as others have said it does feel more like a TV show than a movie. Adjust your expectations accordingly and it might not be so bad an experience.

    One of those films I felt like I should have seen, so thought I'd give it a go. It isn't very good is it?
