Sukiyaki Western Django - 日式牛仔一品鍋

Sukiyaki Western Django is 2007 movie out of Japan starring Hideaki Ito. A mix of a Yojimbo with Man with No Name. The funny thing about this film is that its completely spoken in English. No subtitles. I don't know if anything was dubbed, but I didn't have a problem understanding the English at all.

Its a mix bag for me as I just watched this a month ago. I wasn't sure what to expect and I didn't know the historical context of the conflict between the Genji and Heike clans. I had a inkling that Hideaki Ito's character of Yojimbo type qualities was going to out last both clans. The back story that Quentin Tarantino's story provided didn't enhance the movie much.

You can get it via Amazon or Netflix.
