If you were really hoping to get a feel for what you might could expect in Takashi Miike’s macaroni western “Sukiyaki Western Django,” then I think this still alone gives you a pretty damn good taste – pistol vs samurai sword.
“Sukiyaki Western Django” is screening at TIFF’s Midnight Madness @:
Tuesday, September 11
Thursday, September 13
Saturday September 15
The white clad Genji, led by Yoshitsune and the red clad Heike led by Kiyomori, face off once again in a poor mountain town. Both sides searching for a legendary treasure that may be buried there. A lone gunman, burdened with emotional scars but blessed with incredible shooting skills, drifts into town. Expectations reach boiling point as everyone wonders which gang the gunman will finally decide to join. Dirty tricks, betrayal, desire and love collide as the situation erupts into a final, explosive showdown.
