Reviews of the Sword of the BeastSword of the Beast is another one of those "anti-samurai" chanbara films like Harakiri or Samurai Rebellion. Unlike Kurosawa, whose samurai films delved into universal and humanistic themes, filmmakers like Kobayashi or Uchida concentrated specifically on the issues of feudal Japanese society. This early film by accomplished filmmaker Hideo Gosha is also socially conscious in that way.
It opens with a huge grass field reminiscent of that from Onibaba, but later shifts the setting to a Rashomon-like forest (near a mountain) where people are often obscured by the grass, bushes and trees in the similar attempt to portray the wickedness of the place's inhabitants who therefore "lost themselves" there. The main character, condemned by society, proves to be the most sane person around while the other characters are often compared to beasts.
The swordfighting scenes are swift and badass to the core. Gosha certainly knows how to film an exciting fight scene without it looking too cheesy, rushed or unrealistic. All in all, the action portions of the film are very exciting.
What I hate the most are the flashbacks, which, like in most Japanese films of that era, are scattered around without distinguishing them from present-time shots, which can be a little confusing sometimes. However, the story opens with a short narration giving us all of the necessary exposition so I guess the flashbacks aren't as bad in this movie as they can be in others.
