There Can Be Only One RR

Sydney Pollack's Jeremiah Johnson (1972) makes me long for the days were a common occurrence out of Hollywood. Love the loneliness and brutality of life in wild. Some heartbreaking moments and stoic Robert Redford. Awesome film.

And in other news, another remake of Zatoichi but with a girl filling the famous tabi shoes in Fumihiko Sori's Ichi (2008). Wasn't overly in-like with this but found it watchable. In truth, it's less about the girl and more about a confused Ronin who finds his way. Worth a look.
