Best dark samurai film

Great film with palpable dark atmosphere. Disc has solid picture and audio with some special features.

Shark with a sword

The main character is an out and out psychopath, devoid of human warmth or emotion. He exists as an extension of his katana... I dead-eyed shark with a sword. He has to keep moving or he drowns in nihilism. Your old nanna will love this.
