Last night's film was "Ashura," more fun than the three most recent "Star Wars" movies put together. One of the leads is a real Kabuki actor playing a Kabuki actor who is also a demon-slayer, very "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" as he's also a hottie. His performance in the onstage scenes made Kabuki very understandable to me for the first time. For everyone else, a great period action/fantasy film circa 2005 with an upside-down castle in the sky, malevolent nuns, entire Edo (old Tokyo) on fire, interesting leads, hot sex, conflicted demons and gorgeous art direction...
