TRAILER FOR STEVEN OKAZAKI'S MIFUNE: THE LAST SAMURAI


Boy oh boy has it taken a while for Steven Okazaki's Mifune: The Last Samurai to make its way out of the festival scene, or even back onto it! After screening in Venice Classics' documentary programme last September, the next engagement for the Mifune Toshiro portrait will be in London next month, more than 13 months after premiering! Okazaki's film features commentary on the great Japanese actor from acclaimed film professionals as well as Mifune's friends and family. Looks like an excellent doc, from a highly talented director, about an equally talented performer.
