Sunday, April 28 – 7:30 PM COWBOYS AND SAMURAI
Double Feature: UNFORGIVEN, 1992, Warner Bros., 131 min. Dir. Clint Eastwood. Eastwood once again directs Eastwood, this time as reformed killer William Munney, a widowed single father trying to keep his farm. When a young loudmouth who idolizes Munney tells him about a reward for killing some sadistic cowboys who have cut up a whore, Munney finds himself being dragged back into the old life. Enlisting reluctant old comrade Ned (Morgan Freeman), the trio heads for town, unaware of its brutally self-righteous sheriff, Little Bill (Gene Hackman). This harrowingly dark and beautiful film is one of the most complex, uncompromising Westerns ever made, and it won four Oscars in 1993, including Best Picture and Best Director. "…a classic Western for the ages…a tense, hard-edged, superbly dramatic yarn that is also an exceedingly intelligent meditation on the West, its myths and its heroes..." -Todd McCarthy, Variety
HARAKIRI (SEPPUKU), 1962, Janus Films, 134 min. Dir. Masaki Kobayashi. An intense, intricately composed meditation by master director Masaki Kobayashi (KWAIDAN) on the war between the feudal ethos and humanity in the Japanese psyche. Recently impoverished samurai Tatsuya Nakadai attempts to take vengeance on the clan who forced his son-in-law (Akira Ishihama) to commit seppuku (hara-kiri). Using the clan’s own code of honor against it, Nakadai slowly, ruthlessly forces the film to its shattering climax. Toru Takemitsu provides the scarily dissonant score. With Tetsuro Tanba and Rentaro Mikuni. In Japanese with English subtitles.
NOTE: It is always a good idea to verify date, time, location and other information prior to going.
