Honor, duty, awesome swords, and historical Tom Cruise. It's The Last Samurai directed by Edward Zwick, starring Tom Cruise and Ken Watanabe on this episode of Forgotten Cinema. Listen as Mike Field and Mike Butler talk about the controversy surrounding this film, both from the aspect to casting Tom Cruise and the glorifying of the Samurai during that time. They'll also talk about how good Ken Watanabe is in his first American film as well as how well filmed the battle scenes are. The Mikes will also discuss the excellent score and dialogue in the film and how films that are about history are supposed to tell a compelling story, not become a documentary. So grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for (Forgotten Cinema).
