Rebel Samurai: Sixties Swordplay Classics DVD Set (S) LiveAction

Rebellion! The political and cultural tumult of the 1960s shook Japan as it did the rest of the world. Japanese filmmakers responded to the changing times by disguising themes of dissent in the traditional form of the swordplay film, or chanbara. Previously populated by heroic samurai, self-sacrificing ronin, and historical figures who exemplified noble Japanese virtues, the genre began embracing a new kind of hero, or antihero: the lone outcast, distrustful of authority but maintaining a personal code of honor.

These four classic films, from four masters of Japanese cinema, turn a genre upside down, redefining for a modern generation the meaning of loyalty and honor as embodied by the iconic figure of the samurai.

Includes the following films:
Samurai Rebellion
Sword of the Beast
Samurai Spy
Kill!

Spoken Languages: Japanese, English subtitles.
