If you're interested in experimental takes on narration, you should see this movie.
If you enjoy vigorous b/w cinematography, you must see this movie.
If you furthermore have a thing for nihilistic samurai stories, it's already a new favorite.

Stunning minimalistic samurai vendetta movie! Starts with the sun setting, the last color and daylight you will see. It grows darker and darker until hell! Should be on many lists!

The term "Shura" is derived from "asura", a sanskrit buddhist/hindu name for a demon. Shura is sometimes regarded as a specific asura, a dark god who suffers & declines unless steeped in constant warfare, for which he eternally hungers. The word is additionally a Noh drama term for for a type of play about ghosts or suffering warriors, which would be a dead-on description of the gloomy haunted protagonist of the film.

A peculiar movie that benefits from unpaired experimental cinematography, but suffers from depressing excess of violence. Don't watch it if you don't like murder scenes.

Magnificent piece of art. Matsumoto should make more movies.

Between the slight baroque and a total mess, sometimes pubic hair slides in the wrong place and mess around.
