The Samurai

The Samurai ★★★★★

John Hughes didn't make movies for teenage me, but if he did, they still wouldn't hold a candle to Till Kleinert's The Samurai. Smudging together slashers, werewolf tropes, ronin flicks and postpunk alienation into a heedlessly, headlessly, sparking neon orangery fulminating cauldron of Desire and Becoming fully off the chains of domesticity, coming out and coming together in feral emergency. This movie rules, and is ruled by none.
