Editorial Reviews

Famed Japanese auteur Takashi Miike, best known for cult classics Audition, Ichi the Killer, and The City of Lost Souls, redefines the spaghetti Western with SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO, a tale written in blood. Two clans, the white, Genji clan, led by Yoshitsune, and the red, Heike clan, led by Kiyomori, battle for a legendary treasure hidden in a desolate mountain town. One day, a lone gunman, burdened with deep emotional scars but blessed with incredible shooting skills, drifts into town. Two clans try to woo the lone gunman to their side, but he has ulterior motives. Dirty tricks, betrayal, desire and love collide as the situation erupts into a final, explosive showdown. Quentin Tarantino also stars. LIMITED EDITION STEELBOOK PACKAGING

Customer Reviews

Great characters and action.
Ben M
The stunning visuals and camera work surpasses its spirit that some viewers may find the film a bit passive and is too commercially superficial.
Woopak
If you like your films cut up this is an ok movie but feels incomplete.

First Look Pictures has done this film and viewers a disservice. Aside from cutting 23 minutes from the original theatrical release, thereby making the narrative chopped and damaging the more fluid presentation of the original film, they have also overly saturated the color and brightness of the film during the reminiscent episodes, as well as some of the segments concerning the "Reds." I will applaud them for providing better clarity in the sound reproduction for dialogue, but ultimately would recommend avoiding this blu-ray transfer (as well as their regular DVD, due to similar editing)in favor of the original theatrical release, which is available through various vendors: RedSun DVD; DVD Asian; or YesAsia. Alternatively, try to track down an Asian blu-ray that presents the original run-time and that also offers a better quality transfer than First Look.

Format: DVD
Recipe for Film: Begin with one female assassin/warrior (Kaori Moimoi) worthy of the Goddess Kali in her most destructive form and place her in an 1800's Asian/western setting (Asian western?). Then find a tall, mysterious actor (Hideyaki Ito) who can pull off a Clint Eastwood-like persona to play the new stranger in town and another actor (Masanobu Yoichi) in an adversarial role who looks like he just stepped out of an Anime drawing. Simmer slowly while adding a generous portion of Kurosawa nihilism for 121 minutes until the screen is red with blood and just about everyone's dead. Dinner..., I mean entertainment is served!

That in a nutshell is Takashi Miilke's 'Sukiyaki Western Django'. If you enjoy; surreal imagery, subtle (and not so subtle) parody, faux depth and lots of death and destruction this is the film for you. And if that's not enough to keep you entertained how about taking a look at the lovely Yoshino Kimura as the ill-fated Shizuka? This one is certainly worth your time and the price of a bag of popcorn.

Takashi Miike is the very definition of a visionary filmmaker. To call him the most prolific director on the planet might be the understatement of the decade. The man churns out film after film with staggering variety, endless creativity, and a lot of style while never failing to smash every boundary of taste and genre. He's conquered the heights of truly disturbing horror, redefined disgusting, shown us horrific violence, that love is torture, and spoofed the superhero genre as well while making as many as nine films in a single year. No joke. So having crossed every line possible, what's left? Why not bring a katana to a gunfight and see what happens? "Sukiyaki Western Django" is to the western film genre what Kill Bill was to the martial-arts genre: a love letter in cinematic form from across the Pacific Ocean. And sure enough, Miike-sensei brought Quentin Tarantino along for the ride. Tighten your bootstraps, this one's a doozy.

I am not a fan of western films, but Asian cult cinema: hell yes.

Unfortunately there wont be an extended version. The steelbook edition is the definitive release for western viewers.
