Mifune documentary opens in the US, honoured with Hollywood star

Mifune: The Last Samurai
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:

No doubt somehow connected to the documentary’s opening, Mifune also finally received his Walk of Fame star in Hollywood. This was originally announced last year.

Have you seen the film, or are you planning to go to see it? Drop a comment below if you do manage to catch it.
