    The House That Jack Built

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Okay, I’m just going to say it, I love this movie. The House That Jack Built may be one of the most polarizing films I’ve ever seen. You’ll either be disgusted and feel pandered to or you’ll see this as the new American Psycho. I love American Psycho, and while this film is quite different, it has many things in common with American Psycho, as well as Dexter. However, it’s clear there’s something deeper to this film than just the…

Such a simple concept, done with so much style, class and astonishing set design with tons of extras (who are all fantastic). It should also be noted that the…

    ★★★★½

    Why is this movie rated lower than the rest in Kurosawa's filmography? Sanjuro is the sequel to Yojimbo, coming just a year after and, in my opinion, is an even better film (Not to say Yojimbo isn't fantastic). Sanjuro continues the story of the lead character by the same name and he is clearly becoming a better person throughout this film.

    Sanjuro doesn't ask for money for everything he does, in fact he helps an unfortunate group of nine men…
