  1. ceknklsn's rating of the film Harakiri

    88/100 (Ne denilebilir ki. Böyle usta eserler gördükçe çok ama çok mutlu oluyorum. Son 15-20 dakikada aksiyon namına heba edilen saçma sahneleri çıkarınca gelmiş geçmiş en iyi filmlerden biri. Direnmenin, gelenekçiliğe karşı savaşın, otoritenin baskılarının, sefaletin destanı. 17. yy'da olan şey 21. yy'da da devam ediyor. Sanırım hepimiz Tatsuya'nın başroldeki karakteri gibi "direnen harakiri" yapmaya sürükleniyoruz)

  2. Lex Lucas's rating of the film Harakiri

    A must see. Tensed. Beautiful. A critique on traditions. Dusk of life. A tragedy. Man... I loved it. The rythm of the dialogue and the compositions are great.

  3. $ROBINROSA$'s rating of the film Harakiri

    multi levelled reality and appearances.

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Harakiri

    Un chef-d'oeuvre tranchant du cinéma nippon ! www.cinefiches.com

  5. Viginti_tres's rating of the film Harakiri

    A clever joke re-spun into a tragedy by the layers of humanity that gradually accrue in its telling. Kobayashi, unlike Kurosawa, has a disdain for the action he displays (albeit a respectful one) which alone subverts the samurai genre entirely.

  7. Luis Pires's rating of the film Harakiri

    Cinematography, soundtrack, storytelling! Also, feels like a major inspiration on Tarantino's 'Kill Bill', along with 'Lady Snowblood'.

  8. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Harakiri

    Why in the world would you remake this film? It's almost perfect, aside from the tentativeness that Tatsuya Nakadai had from using real swords. A practice that was later banned. The lighting is masterful, and the suspense just built and built. We got to see him be more than just an avenging angel. He was a bit like Columbo with those, "And another thing .."

  9. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Harakiri

    Kobayashi is a master of lateral tracking shots. They are so subtly expressive. Every camera move makes a point. I love being in the hands of a great craftsman.

  10. Smooli's rating of the film Harakiri

    Quite frankly my #1 go-to movie when discussing perfect pacing, structuring, and story-composition. It is simply amazing how well this movie was done by Masaki Kobayashi.

  12. Kevin Costner's rating of the film Harakiri

    Tatsuya Nakadai is a badass !!

  13. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Harakiri

  14. Kamran's rating of the film Harakiri

    Few films compare when regarding the meticulous detail and affecting nature of each structured composition. Film as craft. 94/100 - Amazing.

  15. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Harakiri

    Astonishingly intense, tear-your-hair-out (as you watch) cinema.

  16. Jake.Durston's rating of the film Harakiri

    "Swordsmanship untested in battle is like the art of swimming mastered on land."

  17. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Harakiri

    Rarely is a film so meticulously crafted and perfected on all it's fronts in the way this is: cinematically, artistically, politically, emotionally, and in sheer entertainment. This is masterwork that with great style and mastery of the craft paints a picture of a hypocritical society and of great human suffering.No punches are pulled here, not emotionally and certainly not viscerally.

  18. Lintang A.'s rating of the film Harakiri

    With its amazing cinematography,crazy plot,tense dialogue,simple soundtrack but it will make you feels more about the situation,and thats the reason why this film is the best,most realistic,and the most amazing jidaigeki film that i've ever seen. 9.5/10 Thumbs up for masaki kobayashi's best work and for tatsuya nakadai's best act.

  19. Joel Shelton's rating of the film Harakiri

    If there ever was a 'greatest story ever told' in cinema, this film certainly would be it.
