-Twitch Film

2007, 98 min., 35mm. Directed by Takashi Miike. With Hideaki Ito, Yusuke Iseya and Yoshino Kimura. In English.  NY Premiere.

In Competition, Venice Film Festival 2007.

YEE-HAW!  Put on those cowboy boots and join the
Sukiyaki Western Party, following the screening.

Takashi Miike, director of Ichii the Killer and Audition, is back again with this homage to the Spaghetti Western. When a mysterious gunman rides into Nebada (Nevada), he finds it filled with bloody corpses left behind from the Genji and Heike, warring clans who destroyed the peaceful town in search of a hidden treasure. Highly sought after for his splendid quick draw, the gunman vacillates between the two clans while concealing his true identity. Guest-starring Quentin Tarantino, this outrageous English-language "Eastern Western" is jam packed with samurai sword-swinging, gun-slinging and Shakespeare-quoting cowboys.


$15 general / $11 Japan Society members & seniors.
This event is SOLD OUT.

Part of JAPAN CUTS - Festival of New Japanese Film.
Co-presented with the New York Asian Film Festival.
