I have to say, it’s incredible. You really look like a woman! Does make-up make men beautiful?

It’s the old, old story. Blind masseur comes to town, does a bit of gambling, meets a cross dresser and his/her sister and then brutally murders dozens of criminals. How many times have we heard that tale? And this is the plot of this week’s film, Zatoichi. Cliché! Still, the 101 Films boys found a lot to like in this, the first listener recommended film!

Without further ado, here’s this week’s feature presentation… Click below:
