The brand new Toshirō Mifune documentary Mifune: The Last Samurai had its premiere in the US theatres yesterday. Until now confined to the film festival circuit, the film should now be playing in the larger cities, although I have trouble finding out where, exactly. By this, I gather the “wide” release isn’t quite as wide as the word might imply.
Early reviews are on the whole positive, although there does seem to be a consensus of opinion that the film could have done with more depth and substance.
The film is narrated by Keanu Reeves. Here’s a trailer:
