Karnov’s review published on Letterboxd:
The final fight, which is super bloody and super long, makes this definitely worth a watch. But I was left with many questions for instance: Is his soul doomed or is his sword doomed? Is the doom the chicken or the egg? Was there a resolution to any of the revenge plots? Why were there so many different revenge plots? Why wasn't more of the movie just Ryunosuke freaking out, destroying brothels, and killing hundreds of people?
