A Scoundrel of a Barber

I have just added a new title to my recommended live action movie page. This one a recording of a kabuki play Tsuyu Kosode Mukashi Hachijō - Kamiyui Shinza.

Nakamura Kanzaburō XVIII, one of my favorite actors in kabuki and movies, is so good as the villainous main character that you want to grab the nearest stick and smash him on the head with it. The play was written by Kawatake Mokuami  who also scripted the masterpiece Shiranami Gonin Otoko
