The orderly, rigid code of bushido smashes up against human feeling in Masaki Kobayashi’s Harakiri (1962), a stunningly trenchant piece of subversive film-making — written by Rashoman and Seven Samurai scribe Shinobu Hashimoto, and starring the great Tatsuya Nakadai — that threatens to demolish the foundational ethos all of samurai cinema is built upon.
