Dir. Takashi Miike. 2010, 126 mins.
There’s not much that Takashi Miike can’t do, and here the hyperprolific director marks a new target: the classic action period piece. With its assured direction of an ensemble cast and perfect pacing—a slow build to a raucous hour-long battle that stands with the best of Miike’s career—13 Assassins is spectacular samurai brilliance.
