Revenge of a Kabuki Actor (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on October 25, 2008

I’ve always called this An Actor’s Revenge, but AnimEigo released it under this alternate title.  Despite my burning desire to file the DVD under “A”, I’ll go along with it.  This isn’t the best this film could look, but it’s always nice to be able to add one of my favorites to my shelf.  A flawless film, amazingly stylized “kabuki noir” with an entertaining story of intrigue and brilliant cinematography.  One of those movies that gets me excited about watching movies.  I really need to start tracking down more Ichikawa.  Rating: 10
