The Tale of Zatoichi Reviews
The basic premise was similar to the spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone that were filmed in the late 1960's. The difference was that each Zatoichi film would turn out to be as much a morality statement as an action flick. The comedy bits are funny and add to the telling of the tale. This is a great film even if you aren't a fan of sub-titles.., Zatoichi let's his cane-sword do much of his talking!
-If possible, get the Criterion Collection's 25 film set complete with documentary & booklet.
Not to mention that this movie was an inspiration to the ''blind swordsman'' genres.
