Tale of swordsmanship presenting an aesthetic shamelessly plundered by Tarantino for his Kill Bill films. Bizarrely, after much sword-wielding and slaying, Zatoichi’s staggering narrative closes with a merry tap-dancing choreography, which ought to number among the best dance episodes in film ever.
