Collections provide a way to gather titles in personal or public lists.
Large scale, lavishly produced and delicately crafted historical epic - sadly the expansive historical canvas and vast array of characters ultimately proves too much for either Harada or Shiba to handle, resulting in confusing storytelling, especially during the intricate politicking in the first half, which ultimately makes the film frustrating. Still almost a recommendation for the stunning visuals and sheer ambition and scope of the story alone.
