The Last Samurai

The Last Samurai ★★★½

I mean enjoyed the film a lot but I had some problems with it,,

As much as Tom Cruz plays a loveable character it very much comes off as the white saviour trope. 
It feels at times that they portray traditional Japanese culture as inferior and backwards.

Besides that I thought it was quite beautiful and the insights and conversations held by some of the characters are very enjoyable
