I just saw one of the greatest films of all time! Chushingura! This movie is so good! Why isn't it on the top 100? You should go see it right now! What? You've seen it already? Then go see it again!

Pacifists? Have you seen the ending of that movie? Murder galore!

We must have seen different movies, the violence at the end is all off-screen. I thought the whole point of Mizoguchi's 47 Ronin was that the singular act of bloodletting at the beginning generates the expectation for more violence but negates it in favour of political intrigues?

Hmm...I think it's my mistake, considering the film you guys are talking about is not Mizoguchi's?!? My weakened powers of observation and translation and so forth. :)
