certainly like to see some modern Japanese film makers explore their
history from the Japanese perspective, and not have the Americans do
it for them (i.e. Last Samurai). While I also realize that the wuxia
genre of films is a very Chinese concept, it's visually stunning (esp.
in the style of CT, HD and Hero) and could be easiler adapted to
various points in Japanese history (Sekigahara and the Mongol
invasions are two that come to mind).
