The "Vancouver International Film Festival" is running right now, and
I've had a chance to see a few great movies:

1)Shadow of the Vampire, starring John Malkovich and Willem Defoe. This
is one awsome movie about how the famous '20s vampire movie "Nosferatu"
was made.

2)Gohatto.  Japanese movie about treachery and sexual jealousy in 1860s
Samurai militia.  Some really great sword fighting sequences (both with
bladed and practice swords).

3)Gojoe.  A great action-packed semi-mythical portrayal of 12th centuray
Samurai clashes between the Genji and Heike clans....  More great swords
and other action.  Great costumes too.

If you get a chance to see any of these flicks, I really recommend you
