well, the experience feels like watching an anime classic... which really isn't a bad thing since most of em like ruroni kenshin, afro samurai and ninja scroll are rip offs one way or another from this trilogy anyway...

its quite rare for a film to combine both character and plot driven narrative in one cohesive whole and rarer still to do it beautifully like what hiroshi inagaki did in this epic... i guess with a combined running time of over 6 hours and playing a part on the screenplay must have helped...

the climactic duel the protagonist had against a fierce rival during sunset on a beach was a thing of beauty... as with miyamoto's slow personal, professional and mental metamorphosis from a naive soldier to a wise samurai...

i think i better check this one out, i have this trilogy in my collection for years now but haven't got the time to watch it

maybe because i tend to compare it to Kurosawa's and may end up disappointed

chungking express

despite 2 separate stories linked by the characters' affinity to a small eatery somewhere in hong kong, this film has no plot...

yes, it is character driven film but it aint something where the protagonists evolve into something or resolve some personal turmoil or conflict... rather, it is an exploration of typical people and their efforts to make sense of themselves in a society governed by the drudgery of everyday life...

difficult to appreciate at first (specially the scenes in some indian community) but as the film marches on, it becomes apparent that the film is actually a great mirror that reflect what makes ordinary humans tick in the context of their everyday lives...

chinatown

a nosey private eye... check...

a ravishing femme fatale... check...

an elaborate crime... check...

a shadow of venetian blinds passing into a character 's face... check...

a gorgeous film noir featuring a prime jack nicholson... check...


might be roman polanski's greatest film... yes, even greater than rosemary's baby or cul-de-sac... its up there with billy wilder's double indemnity as the best film noir i've seen... 10...
