The Cinematheque kicks off a seven-week Seven Samurai Films series this weekend with Samurai Rebellion. The 1967 sword-and-kimono epic about an aging warrior who takes on a tyrannical ruler doesn't stray far from the genre's usual tropes. No matter -- fast and furious slicing and dicing skills are what we're looking for from this series, and we won't be disappointed. On tap are faves like Three Outlaw Samurai, Sword of Doom, and Harakiri -- all of which will look familiar to anyone who's seen Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill movies.
Sun., July 23, 7 p.m.
