Well, that’s the name of the film anyway. Kill! “is a 1968 film directed by Kihachi Okamoto, written by Akira Murao, Kihachi Okamoto, and Shugoro Yamamoto and starring Tatsuya Nakadai” according to the Wiki. It’s the first film in the NW Film Center’s Samurai series that we’ve been able to make. Quite enjoyable. Taysuya Nakadai is charming and full of underdog appeal. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him before and now I’m very curious about his career. He reminds Anjali of Robert Mitchum but his soulful eyes remind me of Peter Lorre without the creep factor. The film is thoughtful and not at all what you might expect from a movie called “Kill!.”
