Takashi Miike (Japan, 141 Minutes)

Takashi Miike (Audition, Ichi the Killer) has more than 80 films under his belt, but none quite like “13 Assassins.” The year is 1844, and a young lord reigns over his village with an iron fist. The era of the samurai is coming to a close, but one honest government official secretly enlists thirteen swordsmen to bring an end to the sadistic lord’s power before it spreads. While reverently paying homage to samurai classics of the past, this is not a tongue-in-cheek take on an old genre.  This is good old-fashioned film-making, with a gloriously blood-soaked climactic battle scene that will be remembered for years to come. Starring Koji Yakusho, Takayuki Yamada, Yusuke Iseya and Goro Inagaki.
