Yo fam! So here at Yancha Digs, if you can't tell by our style already, we're down with a certain few things that we feel sets our style apart from other skate blogs/amateur skate brands. Namely, samurai. We really fucking dig samurai. So sometimes, a film, or comic, pop culture novelty, or more seriously, a piece of academic research comes along, and we get excited. Like "feel these nipples" kind of excited. That's how much we're into this kind of stuff.
So if you at all, dig our style, then perhaps you might dig what makes us who we are. It's for this reason that I feel the need to tell our American readers about Takashi Miike's new movie that's coming out in the States on July 20th called "Hara-kiri: Death of a Samurai." Here's the trailer:
I saw this movie when it premiered in Japan under it's Japanese title "Ichimei," and I gotta say, it ruled pretty hard. It's not quite a non-stop action packed thriller some of you might be hoping for, and it's of course a movie so it's not the most historically accurate piece of work, but it's a damn good narrative with some damn good drama, a killer twist, and an ending sword fight that left me without a clean pair of underwear. It without a doubt carves its own place within the world of modern samurai cinema. Check this shit out.
