Two Films by Hideo Gosha
Samurai Wolf 1 & 2 is a two-movie set of classic samurai films directed by Hideo Gosha.
The films were originally released in 1966 and 1967, and are now being released on Blu-ray for the first time.
They are in black and white and feature Japanese dialogue with English subtitles.
Both films are action-packed with plenty of samurai martial arts scenes.
The first film tells the story of Kiba, a ronin who wanders into a small town and finds himself caught up in a local conflict.
Samurai Wolf II picks up where the first film leaves off.
Kiba is now on the run from the authorities, and he must use all of his skills to stay one step ahead of them.
Hideo Gosha was a master of the samurai film, and Samurai Wolf 1 & 2 are two of his best films.
The films are beautifully shot, the action is exciting, and the characters are complex and well-developed.
If you are a fan of samurai films, then you will definitely want to add Samurai Wolf 1 & 2 to your collection.
Samurai Wolf 1 & 2
Release Date 5/16/23
Synopsis: Samurai Wolf 1
Isao Natsuyagi stars as Kiba, a charismatic ronin who wanders into a small town and ends up ensnared in a local conflict that’s more than meets the eye.
After dispatching a pair of highway criminals seen robbing a courier wagon, Kiba agrees to assist a beautiful blind woman who runs the local shipping company.
Double- and triple-crosses ensue, illustrated with savage but economical violence courtesy of famed director Hideo Gosha’s striking black and white filmmaking.
The result is a lean and mean triumph of samurai cinema, cementing Gosha’s status as a master of the genre.
Synopsis: Samurai Wolf 2
Charismatic ronin Kiba returns, once again entangled in a complex web of intrigue, involving a crooked goldmine owner, a cynical swordsman, and an arrogant dojo master.
Master filmmaker Hideo Gosha brings his trademark tight pacing and stylish action to this brisk morality play, inevitably punctuated by the explosions of violent swordplay beloved by fans of the genre.
