    The reliably excellent Criterion Collection presents these four diverse and intriguing 1960s samurai films. Not as well known as those of, for instance, Akira Kurosawa, these movies nevertheless make important contributions to the genre in their own ways, and they play with its conventions even as they add to its myths and legends.

    REBELLION! The political and cultural tumult of the early 1960s shook Japan as it did the rest of the world. Japanese filmmakers responded to the changing times by disguising themes of dissent in the traditional form of the swordplay film, or chanbara. Previously populated by heroic samurai, self-sacrificing ronin, and historical figures who exemplified noble Japanese virtues, the genre began embracing a new kind of hero, or antihero: the lone outcast, distrustful of authority but maintaining a personal code of honor. These four classic films, from four masters of Japanese cinema, turn a genre upside down, redefining for a modern generation the meaning of loyalty and honor, as embodied by the iconic figure of the samurai.
