BANDITS VS. SAMURAI SQUADRON
Sunday, August 20–Tuesday, August 22
(1978, 35mm, 163m, Japanese w/English subtitles) dir Hideo Gosha w/Tatsuya Nakadai, Kôshirô Matsumoto, Shima Iwashita. This bloody epic focuses on an ex-samurai, Kumokiri Nizaemon (Nakadai), and a strong, resourceful prostitute, Chiyo (Iwashita), who team up with a clan of bandits to rob the castle of Kumokiri’s corrupt former clan. Set against a backdrop of violence and sex, Gosha’s film becomes a thoughtful meditation on honor and greed.
Hold onto your hats and enjoy the ride of Bandits with Jake Rudegeair’s examination of camp in Gosha’s snappy Samurai saga at Perisphere.
Promotional support for this series has been provided by Japan America Society of Minnesota.
