I won't lie. #ZATOICHI ON THE ROAD ain't great but my essay on it has lots of pictures, so there's that:

Directed by Kimiyoshi Yasuda, written by Minoru Inuzuka. Cast: Shintaro Katsu (Zatoichi), Shiho Fujimura (Omitsu, the pristine but dull damsel in distress), Reiko Fujiwara (Ohisa, the more interesting and sexier conniving woman), Sonosuke Sawamura (Boss…

The key quote, re: narcissism & the "charm" of being childlike: "...a conversation is a two-player activity, and the other person just isn't at all like you. Stallman manifestly doesn't care, maybe even can't care. Other people call this 'childlike'; it's not a good model for adults' being in the world."

“I am, I believe, a ‘non-violent’ fighter. But I am a fighter. And I see with considerable sorrow that I am not going to get done fighting and live at peace in anything like the simple way I once thought I would. So how to keep from becoming evil? “Maybe…
