Lady Snowblood/Lady Snowblood 2

2

A young woman seeks to avenge her mother

Before The Bride there was The Lady: in 1973 a kimono-clad Meiko Kaji played Lady Snowblood, hunting the men who raped her mother and making blood splatter as she settles old scores. Loved by Tarantino, Lady Snowblood ranks alongside Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion and Lone Wolf And Cub as an Eastern grindhouse classic. It’s released here with its rushed, unnecessary spy-themed sequel. Main extra is a context-setting interview with Japanese cinema expert Jasper Sharp.
