Samurai Rebellion 

When: Wed., Aug. 30, 7 p.m.

Price: 0-$12
A magisterial Toshiro Mifune slow-burns his way through the role of dutiful samurai Sasahara—henpecked by his wife and dominated by his lord—whose attempts to be a “good servant” are about to end. “You retreat, and retreat,” says his friend Asano, “until finally you attack.” Rare for the genre, the film’s plot is set in motion by a woman, whose willful stand against injustice inspires the men to act. All fine geometric lines, confined castle spaces, and neatly sculpted patterns of order, Samurai Rebellion finally rebels and, like Sasahara, attacks, exploding in rage against the becalmed, emotionless regime that hascome before.
