The Third Shadow

My newest review on WTF-Film concerns a rather fantastic - if bleak - film by future Shaw Brothers director Umetsugu Inoue starring Raizo Ichikawa. It's Japan in the Sengoku era, and life is painful.

Reading this, I just have to wonder what the Shaw Brothers did to Inoue. Most of his films for them are upbeat to the point of psychosis.

I suspect the influence of the same stuff they used to let I Kuang crank out a thousand scripts per year.
