Zatoichi (The Blind Swordsman)

Finally rented this movie last night. Wow!
I especially liked the contrast between the slash-n-spurt scenes and the wacky-go-lucky Stomp-like percussive dance numbers. The most disturbing part was the CG blood- what's up with that?
The editing was a bit wacky too: a few times I found myself in a blinking stupor after one too many nonsensical jump cuts.
All in all, a very entervaining film.
