    Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai, a film by acclaimed Japanese director Takashi Miike (13 Assassins, Ichi the Killer) masterfully removes the bloody violence the samurai genre hinges itself on, and focuses on the personal lives of the men instead.

    In 17th century feudal Japan, employment has become scarce during a time of peace throughout the country.…
