Last of the 4 movies released in 1964, « Adventures of Zatoichi » is the 9th movie of the Zatoichi series. We learn more information about the father of the hero, and we stumble across a classic reference of mentalism!
Released in 1964, « Fight, Zatoichi, Fight » is the 8th movie of the Zatoichi series. Kenji Misumi is back as a director, Akira Ifukube is back as a composer, and they produced one of the best film of the saga.
« Take Shelter » is a psychological thriller directed by Jeff Nichols in 2011, with one of my favorite actor, Michael Shannon. He plays the part of a family man suffering from visions that make him think there might be a world-ending storm coming.
« Flashing Sword » is the seventh movie of the Zatoichi series. It contains a lot of scenes demonstrating the agility of our blind hero, as well as tons of physical humour and funny dialogues (which is quite unusual) before reaching a dramatic finale with a surprising staging.
