Sukiyaki Western Django [Blu-ray review]

Famed Japanese auteur Takashi Miike, best known for cult classics "Audition", "Ichi the Killer" and "The City of Lost Souls", redefines the spaghetti Western with SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO, an epic tale of blood, lust and greed starring Hideaki Ito, Yusuke Iseya, Kaori Momoi and Quentin Tarantino. Two clans battle for a legendary treasure hidden in a desolate mountain town. One day, a lone gunman, burdened with deep emotional scars but blessed with incredible shooting skills, drifts into town. Two clans try to woo the lone gunman to their sides, but he has ulterior motives. Dirty tricks, betrayal, desire and love collide as the situation erupts into a final, explosive showdown.

Sukiyaki Western Django is a film that I first reviewed back in my CHUD days. 13 years later, it’s getting a special edition release from our good friends over at MVD and First Look. The result is the two cuts of the movie and a ton of special features in standard definition. Not exactly the most enticing thing in the world.

Takashi Miike tends to impress me, but then there are those 00s movies where you can tell he had more of an idea than a film. Quentin Tarantino pops in for a cameo that doesn’t do much. Still, you can see the bones of a great western tale that never got a chance to blow up.

The Blu-ray comes with the following special features.

  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation of the main feature in 2.35:1 aspect ratio
  • Audio: English 5.1 Surround, 2.0 Stereo
  • English and Spanish Subtitles
