Seeing that the spaghetti Western owes a debt to the samurai film — Fistful of Dollars, anyway, owes a debt to Yojimbo — cult director Takashi Miike takes things an illogical step further: a Japanese takeoff on the Italian horse opera, with the actors speaking barely intelligible English. It’s a step into lunacy, or at best into costume-party inanity. With Hideaki Ito,Yusuke Iseya, Kaori Momoi, and (no more intelligible than anybody else) Quentin Tarantino. 2008.
