Stunning minimalistic samurai vendetta movie! Starts with the sun setting, the last color and daylight you will see. It grows darker and darker until hell! Should be on many lists!

If you're interested in experimental takes on narration, you should see this movie.
If you enjoy vigorous b/w cinematography, you must see this movie.
If you furthermore have a thing for nihilistic samurai stories, it's already a new favorite.

The term "Shura" is derived from "asura", a sanskrit buddhist/hindu name for a demon. Shura is sometimes regarded as a specific asura, a dark god who suffers & declines unless steeped in constant warfare, for which he eternally hungers. The word is additionally a Noh drama term for for a type of play about ghosts or suffering warriors, which would be a dead-on description of the gloomy haunted protagonist of the film.
