Jidaigeki films

I have used a loose definition of jidaigeki. I have included movies that take place in Japan during the Edo period or before, hence Genji-era movies are in this list. I have also included yakuza films if they are of the Edo period. If the movie poster pictures a guy with a chonmage hairstyle, I add it too. I do not include any anime, and have avoided, as far as I can tell, any fantasy or over the top unrealistic movies set in the Edo period.
