Zatoichi - GG

Zatoichi (SBS Wed 10P) is part homage, part action/comedy film to the title character, a blind swordsman of Japanese popular culture featuring in his own long running TV series. Zatoichi’s blindness is an advantage in his swordplay as “his other senses are sharper than his blade.”
Written, directed and starring Takeshi Kitano (Dolls), Zatoichi promises to be beguiling, exuberant and “accompanied by absurd spurts of blood.”
