Lone Wolf and Cub: White Heaven in Hell
FILM · LONE WOLF AND CUB
Saturday, January 26, 8:30 PM
In the final film of the Lone Wolf and Cub series, star and producer Tomisaburo Wakayama is given almost complete creative control and runs with it to extreme ends, bringing in director Yoshiyuki Kuroda. The final battle—10 minutes long and involving undead assassins and an army of skiing ninjas—is one of the greatest action sequences in the franchise in terms of its epic scale and cost (taking a month and half to shoot). In the conclusion to their quest, Ogami and Daigoro share a moment of quiet profundity.
1974, 83 min., DCP, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Yoshiyuki Kuroda. With Tomisaburo Wakayama, Akihiro Tomikawa, Junko Hitomi, Goro Mutsumi.
