Original Title:

Sukiyaki Western Django

Leone in A Fistful Of Dollars and Sergio Corbucci in Django took the plot of Kurosawa’s Yojimbo, which Miike here claws back and rips to shreds — a gunslinging samurai is caught between the reds and the whites, and everyone seems to take a long time to die in agony. It’s a fever-dream of a film, at once beautiful and grating — but a little goes a long way.

Sumptuous at times but self-indulgent and incoherent at others.
