    Imdb tells me that this is a dramedy. Imdb lied. This is a god damn horror movie. Right from the start it has this unnerving awkwardness to it, and then when our lead character (played marvelously by Rachel Sennott) gets to the main setting of the movie, a funeral service, it constantly dips in and out of terrifying, chest-tensing suspense right up until the credits.

    So yeah... good stuff.

    I could definitely see someone watching this and saying "This is so boring, nothing happens!". Twilight Samurai isn't some action-packed spectacle, but rather a slow and contemplative drama, focusing on getting to know the protagonist as a person rather than a swordsman. It's beautifully written, with Hiroyuki Sanada commanding every scene with a marvelous and achingly human performance.

    So yeah, I really dug this.

    Half the appeal of this movie is being able to gaze in awe at the breathtaking animation.
    The remaining appeal comes from the emotional trauma.
    Kudos to Shinkai-san and his team. They made a great movie.

    I swear to god, if you hooked Angus Young up to a generator, you could power the entire world for millennia.
