Tigrão's rating of the film The Last Samurai

It's a great piece of entertainment, gorgeously photographed and really well directed. I also find that, despite the basic Hollywood concept of identification to your "enemies", there is a really interesting historical background, where we can witness the transition between two types of societies, two types of armies, and ultimately, two types of war. Really compelling and really cool epic.
