Gory revenge is raised to the level of visual poetry in this stunning action thriller by Toshiya Fujita. A major inspiration for Quentin Tarantino's KILL BILL saga, this endlessly inventive film, set in late 19th-century Japan, charts the single-minded path of vengeance taken by a young woman (Meiko Kaji) whose parents were the unfortunate victims of a gang of brutal criminals. Fujita creates a wildly entertaining action film of remarkable craft, an effortless balancing act between beauty and violence. (Note courtesy of Janus Films.) DIR Toshiya Fujita; SCR Norio Osada, from the manga by Kazuo Kamimura and Kazuo Koike; PROD Kikumaru Okuda. Japan, 1973, color, 97 min. In English and Japanese with English subtitles. NOT RATED
