"Ken Loach's 'Revenge of the Ninja' "

FYC: "Ken Loach's 'Revenge of the Ninja' " - Depressing tale charting the rise and fall of an idealistic young peasant Masao, who runs away to join the Togakureryu ninja clan after his impoverished parents are forced to sell him as a scullery boy to the local shogun. Banned from video release in the 80s due to frequently, bloody use of nunchuks, the highlight of this overwhelmingly grey and depressing action film is the forty minute conference Masao instigates to persuade his colleagues to allow unions into the clan.
