DVD's From My Collection: Harakiri, Directed By Masaki Kobayashi (1962)

Harikiri blow me away when I viewed it a week ago. Not your ordinary Japanese Samurai film but part Shakespearean tragedy and part brutal indictment of power and hierarchy. The tense atmosphere with huge dollops of rage against the injustices of poverty and powerlessness is incredible.
