Sansho the Bailiff

On the other hand, we watched Kenji Mizoguchi's Sansho the Bailiff recently and were pretty much blown away. At least I know I was. I know it wouldn't impress some people out there, but if Shana and I could improvise a story as good as this one, we would be very happy. Kept me continually guessing as to where the plot was going to go, and the scene at the end is really powerful. I'm still trying to figure out why it's named after Sansho, and also what the film might have been saying to post-War Japanese audiences.
