Lost Silver Dept.


Japan Society, New York - Destiny's Son

In Kenji Misumi’s breakthrough film, Ichikawa seeks revenge and redemption after his family is murdered by a rival clan. An astonishing, dreamlike samurai film written by Kaneto Shindo, Destiny’s Son is a demonic masterpiece: designed with quasi-expressionist artistry, awash with surreal landscapes, and subsumed in an otherworldly beauty that fuses Zen and sword.

This one's been rarely seen, so if you can hustle yourself over to the Japan Society to check it out, do it. Or, check out the Sleepy Eyes of Death movies on DVD thanks to the good work of the AnimEigo folks.
