TIFF REVIEW: Takashi Miike’s ‘Sukiyaki Western Django’

Takashi Miike fans are sure to be pleased with his latest effort, the spaghetti western Sukiyaki Western Django (review), which played at the Midnight Madness portion of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival tonight. As much as I didn’t love the film, it truly does capture the spirit of a classic Miike film with some crazy moments – it’s a wild ride, but still missing that special something. Set during “The Genpei Wars” at the end of the 1100s, the Minamoto and Taira gangs face off in a town named Yuda, while a deadly gunman (Ito Hideaki) comes to the aid of the townsfolk.
