"Story of a Man's Face"
28 June 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

is, I believe, the title used when this film was screened in the tai

kato retrospective at the American cinematheque a few years back.

this movie is extremely intense and great. TK movies really come

with some bad ass characters... it's been a long while since the

opportunity to see his films came and went, have not heard

anything of him since. also remember a wonderful ghost story set

in old tyme feudal japan or what have you that was, again, striking

for the rottenness of many of the folks involved in the shocking tale.

I would love to see any of his movies again and wish terribly that

this were possible. . .

anyway the lead actor in this film has a huge scar on his face, I

forget whether it's real or not, but this is not a spoiler"" cause it's

the first thing you see in the first shot and it's a very intense shot:

you really do see that this man's face has a story written on it.

well, if i never see this movie again at least I have the pleasure of

telling y'all to keep a look out for it!
