Lady Snowblood ★★★★½

classically cool-as-heck action filmmaking that vehemently refuses to stop being great. its artistry, like its gallons of prop paint, spurts blood-hot and in excess.

I'm not going to shut up about this movie for at least a week. the first thing I wanted to do when it ended was watch it again. already I'm hatching plans to get my housemates to watch it with me; the perfect COVID mandated thanksgiving away from home.

seriously, man... what a wonderful execution on the timeless concept of revenge fantasies. films about taking out generational trauma with a katana are where it’s at.
