A Clip From Miike's HARA-KIRI (ICHIMEI)
The reaction to Takashi Miike's Hara-Kiri: Death Of A Samurai (Ichimei) was decidedly split, with the film skewing far more towards melodrama than many were expecting from a 3D samurai picture coming on the heels of 13 Assassins. The idea of Miike scaling back into a more deliberate drama does nothing to dissuade me from wanting to see it, however - it screened in Cannes the day after I left - and neither does the below clip that recently arrived online. Don't ask me why it only has one line subtitled. I have no idea.
