Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai (in 3D)

2011 | Takashi Miike

Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai (in 3D)

The acclaimed new film from the prolific director of Audition, Ichi the Killer, 13 Assassins, et al. is a 3D remake of Masaki Kobayashi’s great 1962 samurai drama Harakiri, which starred Tatsuya Nakadai. And it will be shown in 3D when the Cinematheque returns to the Capitol Theatre tonight! Set in 17th-century Japan, the film tells of a penniless samurai who goes to the house of a feudal lord to commit ritual suicide. But flashbacks reveal that the disgraced warrior may have more in mind than just a planned seppuku; he may be seeking revenge. “Remarkably sensitive and moving.” –The NY Times. Cleveland premiere. DCP.

Shown on the big screen at the Capitol Theatre, 1390 W. 65th St. at Detroit Ave. Regular Cinematheque prices apply, but there will be an added $1.50 surcharge per ticket for 3D glasses; no Cinematheque passes, twofers, or radio winners. No Cleveland Cinemas passes or discounts. $10.50 tickets available in advance at Free parking available next to theatre and at other lots in the Gordon Square Arts District.
