Eccentric Dora-heita (Alley Cat) is nicknamed because he's a notorious gambler, womanizer, and is now the fourth magistrate of small town which is ripe with corruption. Already spreading rumours to show how unlikeable he is, Dora-heita is unlike his predecessors, and has an effective strategy to uncover the villains, take back the town, and do it with maximum style. There's a lot more realism to this samurai film, as the action is toned down and there's only a few quick fights. Its the intense cat and mouse game, strategies, and great performance from the lead that make for an effective film. Dora-heita is an underrated gem.
