Critic Reviews for Der Samurai
Der Samurai is an unusual little gem of a film that excites with its own offbeat blend of horror, suspense, and visual elegance.
It's so evocative on an instinctive level that its panting excitement overwhelms the sense of questions unanswered, and often unasked.
A lucid haze of sex and violence, compellingly offbeat and irrevocably Other.
Neither of the actors is particularly strong and some scenes are clumsily handled but this only contributes to the gutterheart sensibility of a film that is considerably more enjoyable than it ought to be.
A queer retelling of the werewolf myth, The Samurai reveals the dark side of a character who comes out in the light of the full moon wearing women's clothing rather than an animal's skin.
Let me just share that this is 1 of the more oddball romances you'll ever witness. Imagine George Romero directing Harold and Maude. As for the finale, which includes a wolf, a full erection, and fireworks cascading from a torso, it's a hoot and a half.
