Der Samurai (2015) Review:

Whatever drug Till Kleinert was on when he wrote the script for Der Samurai must have been a trippy one. I would never feel safe staying in the same room as someone who can come up with such a movie.

Der Samurai is bizarre, to say the very least. At first, I was thinking that this strange movie will eventually make sense in the end, but I was so wrong. It goes from weird to weirder until the final climax that leaves more questions unanswered than I could personally handle. I guess there is a logical explanation to this “piece of mad art” but even the internet could not help me with that.

This said the movie itself isn’t bad. It is very well-shot, all in the dark with great work done on the lighting. The atmosphere is very eerie and the actor playing the samurai is surely creepy enough. But you really have to enjoy that type of movie that leaves you wondering what the hell was happening anyway.

If you like Lynch-like movies with metaphorical stories or incomprehensible scenario, this one might be just right for you. I personally don’t and I found myself bored while watching Der Samurai, and disappointed after the ending didn’t explain anything. Your call!
