Hanzo, originally uploaded by Sven3000.

I love Japsloitation movies! Adapting the spirit of the Blaxploitation genre in the 70s, these movies were filled with over the top violence, nudity and at times, a funky wakka wakka score. Along with the Baby Cart series and Lady Snowblood, my favorites are the Hanzo the Razor series starring Shintaru Katsu, who plays against type from his other alter ego, Zatoichi (He'll always get props from me for trying bring his stash of pot into the US by hiding it in his drawers.) Drawn whilst watching "Whose Got the Gold."
