yeah it was pretty unpretentious, just a homage to Japanese films on Jarmusch's part, it's just a nice twist on the samurai movie.
Maru - 2012-09-15 Nothing more pretentious than internet nerds tossing the word pretentious around.
zatojones - 2008-07-08 yeah i liked this movie pretty good
theSnake - 2008-07-08 I rented this movie because it was scored by The Rza and I love the Wu. I didn't expect much, but it was fucking AWESOME.
AdamOfEden - 2008-07-09 i'm the opposite. i knew it was going to be awesome, and ended up being very impressed with the rza's score.
Camonk - 2009-12-08 I like the comments on this one.
Bort - 2012-10-16 I am perpetually grateful that Jarmusch had a lick of good sense about this movie. He could have made our protagonist a total weeaboo, always talking about "the code of the samurai dictates that ..." and "as a latter-day samurai I am obligated to ..." The suck levels would have been off the chart.
