About the Film:

Directed by Kihachi Okamoto. 1966. Japan. 119 mins.

Tatsuya Nakadai and Toshiro Mifune star in this epic samurai adventure in which a bloodthirsty young swordsman (Nakadai)—plying his trade during the turbulent final days of Shogunate rule—kills a man in competition and is pursued by the slain warrior's brother. Mixing absurdist violence with villainous heroics and visually stunning fight scenes, Sword of Doom is an action-packed statement on the mystery of human violence.
