Like American westerns, the samurai film celebrates tales of loyalty, revenge, romance, fighting prowess, and the decline of a traditional way of life. The Northwest Film Center presents a selection of films—seven Japanese films and four Western reinterpretations— that span six decades of cinema history and reveal the eternal romance of the quest of the hero.
