4 out of 5. Yôji Yamada's THE TWILIGHT SAMURAI reminded me a lot UNFORGIVEN. The plot centers around a widowed samurai who has lost any sense of self-worth. He's internalized a lot of the pain and denies himself the opportunity to move on. The acting is really good. The story feels like the last samurai movie that will be made because of the introduction of guns and the end of the Edo period. Slow, thoughtful and very good relationships make it worth a look.
