Film — Infernal Affairs and Zatoichi

Two recommendations from the Orient this time.

Last weekend I saw Infernal Affairs - a slick modern Hong Kong police vs. Triads actioner, involving deep cover agents and much betrayal. Oh, and large caliber handguns and mobile phones.

This weekend, Zatoichi, the new "Beat" Takeshi movie, not the older films of the same title, concerning the iconic blind masseur. Half of the time it's an updated version of something like Yojimbo - and the other half is something like Kill Bill, with blood and body-parts sailing to all corners.
