    “feelings can creep up just like that. I thought I was in control.”


    beautiful in the sense of a fragile and magnificent beauty, imperial in the sense that one cannot touch without it shattering. i loved how the camera was partially obscured by objects, giving the impression that its onlookers are hiding. it’s almost as if we’re part of this affair, and we can only watch how it would unfold from afar. empathetic, yet at times perturbed.

    the whole masks motif is something i've thought about a lot in recent years for a variety of reasons. just never heard it put so eloquently until this

    just beautiful cinema. stunning colour, brilliant and heartbreaking vignettes, as much about death as it is about life. kurosawa really captured the unsettling and unforgettable nature of dreams. the final segment is so lovely.

    "you will carry on my vendetta, my poor child..."


    a violently beautiful revenge story. this film has a deft grasp of vengeance, the emotions involved, and how it's never truly fulfilled. as well as the way it consumes and twists you into something else. meiko kaji brings beauty & strength to the role and carries this film with her portrayal of yuki. absolutely loved the visual element where the scenes become painted in blood creating artwork pollock would be jealous of. truly incomparable.
