Zatoichi

Some of the negative movie karma of the past few months came back around last night and paid off in the form of The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi. It’s an action movie, but it has a lot of diversions – from slapstick comedy to dance numbers. I enjoyed it enough that I’ll pick it up on DVD when it comes out. The CG blood looks really fake, but apparently that was intentional, and I didn’t mind it anyway. We managed to catch it on the last night of its (very short) run in Toronto, so if you get a chance to see it, run out and do so, ‘cuz I suspect it won’t be around in the theatre for long. The movie is pretty enough that it’d be worth seeing on the big screen.
