    Day 07: Martial Arts Marathon
    A bloody ensemble classic from Chang Cheh.
    The film is about a group of people trying to find a mysterious masked gang who have created a menace.

    Slightly darker from the usual classic Martial Arts of that time. Chang Cheh loves using blood and he had the luxury of using them here. Surely there were some great fight scenes but i enjoyed the story too and how Chang Cheh handled the concept. It was gripping…

    A love letter to indie filmmaking and Samurai films, maybe?

    Its a nice little film. Don't think too much. Just sit, relax and enjoy.
    Remember, It might as well as inspire you to make your own film. I can't tell you how many times i thought of my unwritten screenplays while watching this film. Maybe that's what makes it so good?
    One moment i particularly find interesting is, Rintaro have to deliver the dialogue "Sayonara (Farewell)" but the Director didn't…
