I liked Beast alright when I first watched it, but was underwhelmed. Liked it a lot more on this second viewing after your rec. A strong samurai outing.ThatDarnMKS wrote: ↑Tue Mar 24, 2020 2:09 amI really liked Sword of the Beast when I watched it but outside of some distinct images and scenes, much of it has been lost to time. When I watched it, I’d come down with a MASSIVE sinus infection that resulted in me getting sent home from work on account of my nose suddenly gushing blood all over the place.
I’m working my way through my Criterion sets so I may rewatch it and Samurai Rebellion before diving into the other “Rebel Samurai” flicks.
But I may hit up some Fassbinder first.
I hold Samurai Rebellion high, though it's been a long time. In Kobayashi news, I rewatched Harakiri again recently (it was a samurai kick) which was just cemented as a masterpiece. I've shrugged off whatever nits I once picked and forgot.
