Three Outlaw Samurai Criterion Blu-ray looked gorgeous and the transfer is done very well. Hideo Gosha’s first film stands the test of time and has to rank as a must watch Samurai flick. The Samurai in his film are complex characters, ranging from the purely altruistic to the make an easy dollar swashbuckler. The message/plot revolve around a concept that consistently plays out in human civilization: the haves vs the have nots. Choreography and fight scenes still lack the modern touch but it doesn’t take away from the film at all. Hideo Gosha movies are on my list.
