Comments

Fight, Zatoichi, Fight!...Please... I DID like this, the first of the series of blind swordsman movies.Ichi doesn't draw his sword for the first half of the movie,moreover, he seems a lot more bitter than in later movies.This being said, it was an excellent movie. Others have described this movie well, so, I will only add something that I noticed while watching the scene of Ichi fishing with the ailing samurai. What made the scene so compelling was not what was said, but, the effective use of silence between them.The pauses in dialog were masterful, especially the long lull at the end of the sequence.It reminded me of some of Kurosawa's work. I recommend this movie, not as the first Zatoichi that you see,but, rather as something to experience after a few of the more exciting movies...after you've developed a relationship with the character.
