Harakiri ★★★★★

What an absolute joy and honor it was to see my favorite samurai film on the big screen in 35mm...with the legend himself, Tatsuya Nakadai, in the audience. He answered questions afterward and was gracious, humble and quite funny as well. I just barely missed an opportunity to shake his hand and meet him face-to-face, but being able to listen to him for that half hour alone was something I'll never forget. I'm not one to get star-struck, but this was truly special and I wanted to take a moment to document it. The film is perfect - powerful and insightful, no weaker on repeat - but the experience was one in a million.
