Ichimei Dirigido por Takashi Miike
Death of a Samurai is a film of hope drowned out by agonized moans from the poorest, most pitiful humans. It’s an autumnal melodrama that turns cold, bloody and grey, with apocalyptic skies (like Ryûichi Sakamoto’s haunting score) hanging over 3D images of disorder, half-Seurat and half-Manet in their colour and arrangement.

Hara-Kiri still derives pleasure from going through the standardized motions of its genre but changes the emphasis from adherence to obsolescent notions of saving face to an angry tract on social inequality.

What most distinguishes the redo is the often remarkable use of 3-D: Miike turns the format’s inherent limitations, especially the tendency toward visual murkiness, to his advantage, fully immersing us in a world suffused with moral and ethical rot.

O que as pessas estão dizendo?

  • Egoisms's rating of the film Ichimei

    This film is not a masterpiece. Nevertheless it deserves 5 stars. The coda is damning. The end battle is tragic. The tragic denouement--death, death, death--is heart-rending despite it being the weakest element of the film. The opening suicide is truly difficult to watch. The film is beautiful to look at from first to last. The music perfectly complements every scene. An incredible, moving, masterful film.

  • mpho3's rating of the film Ichimei

    "May well be Miike’s best film, a patient, ominous piece of epic storytelling that conscientiously rips the scabs off the honorable samurai mythology. Filthy with moments of grace, from rain that slowly turns to snowfall to the climactic, torrential one-against-many anti-battle, Miike salutes golden-age Japanese cinema by respecting its heart and celebrating its iconic dazzle." - Michael Atkinson, Village Voice

  • Tigrão's rating of the film Ichimei

    Unexpectedly slow and hypnotic, Hara-Kiri is nonetheless a fascinating journey, with a director in absolute control of his craft. The script is beautifully layered to bring you a Rashomon-like twist on the otherwise stereotypical "Revenge movie" formula. It's also deeply human, as Miike seems to question the foundations of his country's cult of honor. Superb.

  • AKFilmFan's rating of the film Ichimei

    Not quite the perfection of Kobayashi's original, Miike's contemplative flip-side to his chaotic 13 Assassins is a different film that changes & homages the original. This change which is a callback to Ozu in it's melodrama causes the film to become uneven in tones, visuals, and violence and become more of a companion piece to the classic 1962 film.

  • Mark Garrett's rating of the film Ichimei

    Brutal. The elongated scene of Motome's suicide is a synecdoche. The larger, longer torture session is of the death of his son. It's all a twisting blade, showing us a half hour story that's "pitiable" and then slowly building on that event. That's humanism at work.

  • Andre Rehal's rating of the film Ichimei

    Having seen and loved Kobayashi's original film it piqued my interest when I found out that Miike was doing the remake as I wondered how much he would stray from the source material and add his own touch. I personally thought that this remake was well done in many aspects and I enjoyed it but not as much as Kobayashi's.

  • Adam Suraf's rating of the film Ichimei

    Did Kobayashi's masterpiece need a faithful remake? No, but I'm not going to second guess Miike, who has become one of the most interesting of modern Japanese directors, and this film is lovely to look at from beginning to end.

  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film Ichimei

    Don't even talk to me if you haven't seen the original. Don't even look at me. The original is one of the best movies ever made. And that crazy Kobayashi insisted on using real swords. That's right, Jack. That takes balls. This isn't bad, but it's a bit pointless.
