BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL “Mugen no jûnin” (Takashi Miike, 2017 / 140 mins / Japanese with English subs) Samurai Manji has taken a lot of lives, both innocent and guilty, and now lives life in feudal Japan as a criminal. After being cursed with immortality until he kills enough evil men, Manji meets a young girl who enlists him to be her body-guard. Swearing loyalty, protection and vengeance against the group of sword fighters who slaughtered her family, the unlikely duo set on a remarkable quest to make right against those who did them wrong.
TOP KNOT DETECTIVE (Aaron McCann, Dominic Pearce / 2017 / 86 mins / In English and Japanese w/ English subs) In the early 90s, a little-known Japanese Samurai/Detective series hit Australia where it quickly became a cult hit. In Japan it was called 'Ronin Suiri Tentai' (Deductive Reasoning Ronin) but in Australia it is know only as TOP KNOT DETECTIVE. This is the story of how a failed Japanese samurai series became an instant cult classic.
