THE BLIND JEDI Is a STAR WARS Samurai Film Inspired by the Films of Akira Kurosawa
Beat Down Boogie has created and released a spectacularly cool Star Wars fan-film called "The Blind Jedi." The short was inspired by Akira Kurosawa and the Zatoichi Blind Swordsman series of films and it brings classic samurai action to the Star Wars universe.
I enjoyed this film, and the fight choreography is solid. I especially enjoyed the old school black and white feel. I don't recall ever seeing a black and white Star Wars fan film before, and it was pretty rad, especially with the whole samurai theme.
I'd love to see a samurai themed Star Wars movie one day. Remember that time there was a rumor that Zack Snyder was developing one? Anyway, I hope you enjoy this!
