Aro Recommended Blade of the Immortal


Japan 2017, 140 minutes
Dir. Takashi Miike
In Japanese with English subtitles
Rating: [R16] violence & sexual violence
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Cult / Martial Arts


“A gorgeous and brutal fantasy romp... and a welcome return to the heroic bloodshed of Miike’s great samurai epic, 13 Assassins.”~Ant Timpson, NZIFF

Aroview: Japanese uber-director Miike Takashi’s 100th feature, based on a popular manga series about a vengeful swordsman with an uncanny ability to grow back his own limbs. The howler of a premise giddily sets the stage for a virtuoso display of kinetic action and flying body parts.
