Donovan H. is our guest this month because of his lifetime obsession with samurai media, but that is not his only passion. He’s also a huge fan of the espionage fiction of John le Carre. So we are extra grateful to have him talk with us about a movie that is in many ways a Le Carre spy story dressed up in Samurai clothes. Masahiro Shinoda plays with his material in a similar manner —though by certainly different means — to what he did with Double Suicide.
This week we talk cold war intrigue and best friend ex machina as we explore Samurai Spy. Listen to it on LostInCriterion.com or iTunes! While you're at it, maybe like us on Facebook? Or consider supporting us through Patreon. We'd appreciate it.
