The Sword of Doom

Director Kihachi Okamoto’s masterful tale of a government assassin whose unconscionable killings slowly grow to haunt him

Although part of HKIFF Cine Fan’s season focusing on Toshiro Mifune the real star here is Tatsuya Nakadai, whose vacanct stare expertly projects the amorality of Ryunosuke, a gifted swordsman who increasingly loses his way with every life he takes.
