Synopsis

Several hundred years after a bloody clan war, hostilities flare up again, and the Red Heike and the White Genji both occupy a part of a Japanese town, hoping to lay their hands on a hidden treasure. A mysterious gunslinger rides into town and is asked by a saloon madam to stay. She secretly is a gunslinger too, the famous B.B. Bloody Benten, trained by the legendary foreign gunslinger Piringo. Several people are killed before things are settled in a bloody shootout. Leone, Corbucci, Kurosawa, Raimi, Peckinpah, Tarantino : they're all referred to in this colourful macaroni-pizza-pasta-western-chambara by cult film maker Miike.

Comment

Sukiyaki Western Django is a bit of a mixed bag: set and costume design are tremendous, the action is fine, but the story-telling is not up to the scratch. Read a full review of the movie here.
