Kill!

September 23, 2013

Japan | 1968 | 115 Minutes | Kihachi Okamoto

In this pitch-black action comedy by Kihachi Okamoto, a pair of down-on-their-luck swordsmen arrive in a dusty, windblown town, where they become involved in a local clan dispute.

One swordsman, previously a farmer, longs to become a noble samurai. The other, a former samurai haunted by his past, prefers living anonymously with gangsters. But when both men discover the wrongdoings of the nefarious clan leader, they side with a band of rebels who are under siege at a remote mountain cabin. Playfully tweaking samurai film convention, Kill! borrows elements from established chanbara classics and seasons them with a touch of Italian western style.
