New Video: A Bloody Spear on Mount Fuji (1955)

Well, we've got a new video on my youtube channel, folks! It's A Bloody Spear on Mount Fuji.


Directed by Tomu Uchida, one of Japan's most overlooked directors, the film can be described as a samurai road movie. It follows a group of travelers as they travel towards Edo, including a drunkard samurai and his two retainers, a shamisen player and her daughter, and a young boy determined to become a samurai lancer. The film dissects late Edo era Japan, taking the time to explore its social conventions. But don't mistake this for a boring drama! It's brimming with lots of energy, humor, and, inevitably, tragedy. I won't give away the ending, but it involves one of the greatest samurai fight scenes that I have ever seen! Enjoy!



By the way...because I am such a genius with technology, I accidentally erased all of my other videos on youtube.........

I'll be reuploading them all today...hopefully...sometimes youtube can be REALLY finicky about uploading videos.......
