About Zatoichi Blu-ray

Zatoichi is the twenty-sixth and final chapter in the iconic samurai film franchise directed by, and starring, Shintaro Katsu and spanned nearly three decades.

Known in Japan as Zatoichi 26 or Zatoichi '89, this lavish production was the last to star Katsu, who originated the title role of "the Blind Swordsman" in 1962 and the only entry where he served as writer and director. Older, wiser but still a wandering loner, the blind, peace-loving masseur Ichi seeks a peaceful life in a rural village. When he's caught in the middle of a power struggle between two rival Yakuza clans, his reputation as a deadly defender of the innocent is put to the ultimate test in a series of sword-slashing showdowns. Tokyo Shock presents Zatochi for the first time on blu-ray and newly remastered on DVD!

Not in Criterion's set


Folks should be aware that this is not include in Criterion's large set of the first 25 movies. If you want all of the Shintaro Katsu Zatoichi films you need to get this one too.
