  1. ermete polpette's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai

  2. Operation Kino's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai

    One of my top favorite films. Less like Seven Samurai and more like Paths of Glory ("sent on an impossible mission they cannot refuse!"), the impossible mission occurs in the final act of the film and is not the film's focus. It's so unapologetically human, even an asocial hack like me can't help but feel the emotion.

  5. Ryan Borja's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai

    With the masterful direction by one of Japan's well-loved filmmaker, the film is not only affectionate and poignant, Twilight Samurai teaches the importance of living life with quiet dignity, honor and contentment. In another level, the film works both as an elegy to the ending samurai era and film genre that have catapulted Japan to the attention of the world. Just bring some tissues when you watch this film.

  6. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai

    The performances, direction, and screenplay are all top-notch in this patient film that examined responsibility, repression, and fatherhood. Definitely rivals some classic samurai films.

  8. film_lies101's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai

    Perhaps the most poetic and beautiful samurai flick of all time

  9. The King of Resolven's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai

    This may sound strange at first, but did the final battle scene remind anyone else of the Walter Kurtz scene in Apocalypse Now? I say that, because there is a build up to it, the samurai in TS is in the shadows like Kurtz and the protagonist and antagonist are similar to each other.

  10. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai

    I didn't like the color palette and the obtrusive Tangerine-Dream-lite-with-flutes soundtrack was pretty obnoxious. Everything else was absolutely fantastic.

  11. Hugo Resendiz Saldivar's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai

    Con una dirección excelente y un guión sencillo y conmovedor, se presenta esta cinta ambientada en la época feudal japonesa, con muy buen trabajo de arte. Me gusto mucho como se mostró al antagonista final, de una manera que asemejaba a un ente sobrenatural.

  12. Rashed's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai

    the underbelly of the samurai genre, in the best way possible. presents a look on the usually revered and lionised samurai of honour as men who struggle to integrate into regular japanese society. you can almost hear the movie itself as a representation of the samurai genre; a dying samurai, breathing his last weary sigh, putting himself to rest.

  15. Pierre's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai

    Not as frenetic as some films in this genre. Nicely paced and it adds an element of the humane.

  16. Jye Sherwell's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai

    Geez...that ending was just wonderful.

  17. Greg's rating of the film The Twilight Samurai
